Scotland

View from Stac Pollaidh

WE have just come back from the most fabulous week in Scotland.  I have many tales to tell, but was keen to post a few landscapes up in the meantime which demonstrate the variety of weather conditions that we experienced.  These are stitched photos (as you may guess!).

Some of the species seen include otter (yippee), ringed plover, whimbrels (see last photo), stonechats, wheatears (everywhere!), short-tailed field vole, stoat, eider ducks, black throated divers, red-breasted mergansers, fulmars and gannets.  I also heard my first cuckoo of the year and saw my first swift on 29//04 (but that was on the way back from Bristol airport!).
