Glenborrodale, Ardnamurchan – August 2016
Here are some random photos from a short wildlife holiday in the West of Scotland; we stayed at Ardnamurchan Bunkhouse and went on various walks and drives in the area. Having recorded our wildlife sightings it transpired that, even as a small group (8 + guide), we saw 100 species of birds and 13 of mammals. The latter included three types of deer, bats, otters, pine martens, dolphins, seals and porpoises; we were also lucky enough to spot some raptors including golden eagle, white-tailed eagle, sparrow hawk and buzzard. Unfortunately, since most natural wildlife is usually seen at a distance and, as I only had a small compact camera with me, my photos are largely of scenery and more stationary subjects! These photos are in random order…. hover over any image to read its description and click on an image to see it in its proper size.
