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 wonderful to return to Lunga and the company of the personable puffins again after missing my regular May trips due to Covid.
As lockdown continues in the Scottish Highlands I’ve been sticking to my local patch photographing and filming the amazing wildlife on my doorstep.
I’ve had a wonderful summer following four amazing mountain hare leverets as they mature into stunning adults.
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.
Nine weeks into lockdown and although craving human company it’s been a joy to spend May watching and photographing the local wildlife.
Finding a community of red squirrels in woods five minutes from my house has been a dream come true. It’s been wonderful and educational to watch and photograph them every day.
Making the most of the lockdown in my Highland home and feeling incredibly lucky to live where I do surrounded by fields and woods full of wildlife.
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.
Another stormy month in the Scottish Highlands, but I made the most of it with trips to the mountain hares and some lovely red squirrels in the snow.
