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.
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!
The weather may have been wet and windy, but it was still a joy to spend a few days in the company of the mountain hares this October.
Little did I know when I booked a day at the Nature Nuts wildlife hide that not only would I see a pine marten at lunchtime, but I’d also be the first to see one of this year’s adorable kits.
My first visit to Eskrigg Nature Reserve, near Lockerbie in Dumfries and Galloway – a fantastic location for red squirrels.
