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 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’s been a crazy couple of months weather-wise but the wildlife is still out and about to enjoy.
As lockdown continues in the Scottish Highlands I’ve been sticking to my local patch photographing and filming the amazing wildlife on my doorstep.
Another year, another lockdown and I count myself extremely lucky to have such wonderful wildlife including red squirrels both in my gardens and my local wood.
These last couple of weeks have been a dream come true for me as I’ve welcomed four red squirrels to my garden in the Scottish Highlands.
Now autumn has arrived in the Scottish Highlands I’m enjoying watching my red squirrel family amongst the golds and oranges of the season.
August in the Highlands – mountain hares in stunning heather and time spent with my ever-growing red squirrel family
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.
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.
