Over the last few weeks I have be fortunate to be able to spend most evening and some mornings watching this family of foxes. Even after going to the trouble of covering myself in camo and lying down in the nettles and bracken I was always sussed by the local dog walkers lab once even running of with my pasty !!!!
|For the pixel peepers these images were taken at very high iso with shutter speeds of less then 100th of a sec .|
I arrived an hour before first light on what I had decided to be my last visit only to meet two big brave men putting a sign on the gate (NO ENTRY SHOOTING IN PROGRESS) For those of you that know me will know how difficult it was for me to walk away needles to say I have not been back .
Try to have a good week

Ive just got back from a week in the Scottish highlands . A great time was had by all we even had some decent weather.
|There didn't seem to be many hares about this year the ones we saw were all on the top of the mountains which made it hard work getting up there carrying our gear.|
|By the time our week was over all the snow had melted leaving the hares looking very vulnerable.|
|Crested tits seem to be thin on the ground to with just two showing at lochgarton|
|The ptarmigan showed very well but again they were very high up the mountains|
|Red squirrels always a joy to spend some time with.|
|Wild goat first for me.|
|On the way home we stopped of in Kircudbright to photograph this sparrow hawk which turn out to be a fascinating experience.|
So thats Scotland for another year and yet again its deprived me of my goal .
Ohh hang on whats that on the track ..........
