After a few weeks of spring-like weather in the Scottish Highlands, winter made a brief, but dramatic return, and of course, I took advantage of it!
Spending time with the mountain hares in the crazy 2019 windy, mild winter weather.
A long-overdue return to Neil McIntryre’s stunning red squirrel hide in the Cairngorms.
Little did I know when I headed to the Scottish Highlands in early March that I’d spend quite so much time photographing crested tits.
Readers of this blog or followers on social media will be aware how much I love spending quality time with mountain hares. The setting is stunning (especially this year when coated in a thick blanket of snow) and it’s wonderful just to sit with a hare as time passes by – even when the hare does little more than twitch and do a half-hearted groom in 3 hours whilst we survive a blizzard and biting cold winds together!
