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.
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.
Now autumn has arrived in the Scottish Highlands I’m enjoying watching my red squirrel family amongst the golds and oranges of the season.
August in the Highlands – mountain hares in stunning heather and time spent with my ever-growing red squirrel family
With the lockdown 5 mile travel limit dropped I’ve been able to go further afield spending time with mountain hares, dolphins and much more.
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.
Before the world shut down March began as a fabulous month in the Scottish Highlands – amazing mountain hare experiences & happy clients, red squirrels and red deer.
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.
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!
