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.
Photographing red kites at a feeding station is an exhilarating experience, and nowhere more so than at Gigrin Farm in Wales.
A rare trip South of the Border rewarded me with wonderful encounters with little owls, kingfishers and a confiding snipe.
The final part of my whistle-stop tour of Scotland saw me in Aviemore for a challenging attempt to photograph ospreys in the mist and mountain hares in the rain.
Photographing fishing ospreys for the first time with a brand new (to me) Nikon D500 was a gamble – but one that paid off.
When it comes to red squirrels, achieving decent photographs without the liberal use of hazelnuts isn’t easy. I’ve tried a few times up in the Queen Elizabeth Forest near Aberfoyle, but have had limited results, so I decided to book a session in Neil McIntyre’s hide on the Rothiemurchas Estate.
