Great to be back on Mull in late April 2019 for a week of wonderful wildlife encounters including otters, sea eagles and puffins.
A wonderful first visit to RSPB Troup Head to see the gannets and fulmars.
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!
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.
It took three years, but finally I enjoyed a wonderful weekend in the company of some of Perthshire’s amazing beavers at Bamff Ecotourism.
A long-overdue return to Neil McIntryre’s stunning red squirrel hide in the Cairngorms.
A weekend of sunshine in the company of my favourite animal, the mountain hare.
Little did I know when I headed to the Scottish Highlands in early March that I’d spend quite so much time photographing crested tits.
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!
Imagine my surprise therefore when I was told of a successful colony of water voles not on a riverbank, but in a small park in a fairly depressed area of Glasgow!
