Scottish highlands March 2017

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 ..........
