As lockdown continues in the Scottish Highlands I’ve been sticking to my local patch photographing and filming the amazing wildlife on my doorstep.
Another year, another lockdown and I count myself extremely lucky to have such wonderful wildlife including red squirrels both in my gardens and my local wood.
2020 may have been a pretty terrible year on many levels but I was lucky to have some incredible wildlife encounters and I loved my first year living in the Scottish Highlands.
These last couple of weeks have been a dream come true for me as I’ve welcomed four red squirrels to my garden in the Scottish Highlands.
Being under lockdown during spring has given me the opportunity to observe, enjoy and photograph all the new life emerging – fledglings, badger cubs, red squirrel kittens and pine marten kits.
Nine weeks into lockdown and although craving human company it’s been a joy to spend May watching and photographing the local wildlife.
Making the most of the lockdown in my Highland home and feeling incredibly lucky to live where I do surrounded by fields and woods full of wildlife.
Another stormy month in the Scottish Highlands, but I made the most of it with trips to the mountain hares and some lovely red squirrels in the snow.
I’ve finally moved to the Scottish Highlands, and am loving it!
Brown hares, roe deer and curlew in the fields and red squirrels in the garden… my idea of wildlife heaven.
