Autumn in the Scottish Highlands has been a season of fantastic colours and challenging wildlife photography. However both myself and my clients have enjoyed some wonderful encounters with some of the incredible wildlife we have in the Highlands.
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.
It was great to be back on Mull for my annual May holiday after a 2 year break. The weather was truly awful but the wildlife was great and I was delighted to manage a day on Lunga with the puffins.
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.
Autumn was late to arrive in the Scottish Highlands this year but once it did the colours were stunning and the wildlife fantastic, as always!
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.
As lockdown continues in the Scottish Highlands I’ve been sticking to my local patch photographing and filming the amazing wildlife on my doorstep.
