Scottish Blankety Blank


Half way up the beautiful Glen Roy


Wren at ISO1600!




Sorry, for the recent lack of posts but we have been away to the Scottish Highlands for a week.
Unfortunately, it was a very wet week and it prevented us getting to some of the places we hope. We had to mostly travel east 60 miles or so for fine weather, but the scenery is fantastic (my favourite place). Dalwhinnie Distillery was a nice diversion one day.

I had high hopes to see one or two of Scotland's special species, when ever we got the chance scouring the hill tops for a glimpse but we drew a blank, complete blank. Oh, we did see three Red Squirrels not being elusive in the tree tops but running across the road and sitting on fence posts.

I did manage this Wren shot nicely framed in the birch, can I call it a Scottish Wren!

Lovely pictures of the Wren Mike. Shame about the bad weather, you should have come down to the South, weather has been brilliant here, better than what we had through the Summer.

Sounds like an excellent name for a Glen Mike.
Fantastic photograph of it. The Wren is just lovely as well.

Hi Mike,
These wren shots are fantastic. It is so hard to get them correctly, but you got it man! Well done I love these shots.

Thanks Lyn, Roy and Chris.
Someone at work when to Kent last week and said it was brilliant weather.
Glen Roy is accessed off Roy Bridge and you can go 8 miles up a narrow road, a glorious area.
I was pleased with the Wren in the lichen covered branches.
