Holiday Scotland 2012.. Part one.
« on: May 26, 2012, 07:56:44 am »
I traveled down to Aberdeen about three weeks ago, I had my car with me so I caught the ferry..

Paisley.. Thats where I met my daughter at her house, she had to put up wae her auld man for three weeks..

Paid a quick visit to RSPB Lochwinnoch, there I caught sight of the Tree-creeper, and others..

Tree - creeper..



The next day it was down to Dumfries & Galloway..

I had to do a talk at the Sanquhar camera club, not have giving a talk before, it was quite nerve racking.. But Andy my mate told me it would be fine..

So my host showed me about the area, he took me to Wanlockhead then Leadhills, there I took these..

Grouse..



Pheasant..



Then Roe-deer up high in the hill..



The next day Andy got permission to take Red - squirrils pictures..



Then this Nuthatch got in on the act..



Then it was off to the Kite trail, it is on Galloway..

Red-kite..



Then it was back to Sanquhar for the.... [gulp].... talk, but before we went, Andy took me up the. what must be the highest hill in Scotland, there we watched Red-grouse, then we went back down the hill and got this, its a female Perigrine at a distance..



Then it was time for the talk and slideshow. the people really liked my slideshow on the Auroras, and the Sei-whale feeding in Firth Voe and in fact they enjoyed all of it, and going by the upplause I got I may... [if i'm spared]... go back next year..

Part two to follow..
