The weather may have been challenging in the Scottish Highlands in January, but I made the most of it with regular visits to the wonderful mountain hares in snow, rain, wind and sunshine!
The gorgeous flowering heather, makes August a beautiful time to visit the Scottish Highlands and it’s a great season to photograph the wonderful little red squirrels.
Another fantastic week in the Scottish Highlands including magical encounters with elusive pine martens and a wonderful mountain hare.
Brown hares, roe deer and curlew in the fields and red squirrels in the garden… my idea of wildlife heaven.
I’ve had the pleasure of photographing red squirrels at a number of locations through out Scotland, so here’s a list of my recommendations and tips for photographing these wonderful little animals.
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.
A weekend of wildlife including elusive puffins, seabirds, red squirrels, hares and red kites.
A long-overdue return to Neil McIntryre’s stunning red squirrel hide in the Cairngorms.
My first visit to Eskrigg Nature Reserve, near Lockerbie in Dumfries and Galloway – a fantastic location for red squirrels.
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!
