Scotland Tour Update

Ok, so here it is, the first update of our annual Scottish Highlands tour. We have battled against adverse conditions (rain, sleet, snow, wind etc) but overall have triumphed. A more detailed blog will be added at the end of the tour, updates throughout and a full trip report will follow in a week or so. Today species of note included; Capercaillie (male and female), Black Grouse, Red Grouse, Ptarmigan (7), Golden Eagle, Red Kite, Osprey, Short-eared Owl, Dipper (feeding a chick), Black-throated Diver, Red-throated Diver, Ring Ousel, Crested Tit and a strong supporting cast. The images below are totally un-edited, straight off the camera, many are record shots and some "phone-scoped". Click on any of the images to view an enlarged version.

 If this wets your appetite for next years tour please feel free to make an enquiry, there are only 3 places remaining!! More tomorrow........
