It’s been a busy, photography-filled few weeks here in the Scottish Highlands where I’ve taken guests to meet my red squirrels, the dolphins, osprey and dragonflies as well as spending many evenings in the company of my garden badgers.
May and June have been busy months for me in the Scottish Highlands photographing and guiding clients to a wide variety of subjects including mountain hares, osprey, dolphins, common seals, badgers and pine marten.
I’ve written an article for Nature TTL about what to photograph in the Scottish Highlands over the summer. If you are visiting then I offer workshops and have rental accommodation.
I’ve spent the past few weeks exploring a local wood and have been amazed at the variety of species I’ve found. Not only that, but the red squirrels are on form and Bo, the mountain hare, is wonderful.
March and early April have seen me busy with “project pine marten”, garden badgers, red squirrel and mountain hare workshops.
It’s been a windy start to 2022 but I’ve made the most of it and was delighted to find a pair of crested tits to photograph.
I haven’t travelled far over the summer from my home in the Scottish Highlands, but there’s been no need to! I’ve enjoyed the company of red squirrels, badgers, rabbits, pine martens and mountain hares amongst other amazing experiences.
It was great to spend a week in Perthshire in July where not only did I conduct a workshop but also visited a wonderful photography hide as well as seeing mountain hares, osprey, marsh harrier and much much more.
It’s been a crazy couple of months weather-wise but the wildlife is still out and about to enjoy.
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.
