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.
It was wonderful to return to Lunga and the company of the personable puffins again after missing my regular May trips due to Covid.
