Wintry Aviemore

As Billy Connolly once said ‘There are two seasons in Scotland, June and winter…
in Scotland, there’s no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes.’
To say the weather in Scotland is changeable is an understatement.  Only 24 hours earlier it was a fantastically sunny and clear day, albeit crisp – a perfect spring day.  The Highlands in Scotland are beautiful (or bonnie) but even more so when the landscape is completely changed by the arrival of snow.  The shots below were taken at a desolate Loch Morlich, Aviemore, with the vast majority of the snow untouched.

Early spring – common and garden birds

Here are a few shots of various birds that I have been waiting to post, but which have been forgotten about due to the vast amounts of pictures waiting to be published on my hard drive .  Amongst the shots below are greenfinch, great tit and a solitary wren.  Enjoy!

Early Spring at Teddington Lock

It’s surprising what wildlife there is to find at Teddington Lock when you consider that it is actually an urban area.  Not really intending to use my camera to photograaph herons, wild parakeets and so on (a social engagement was the reason I was in the area), I only had my 18-55mm and 70-300mm lenses and even forgot to pack my lens hoods and filters.  Which is a pity really because I belive the pictures could have been even better; there’s only so much editing you can do on your PC.  Another lesson learnt here – be more organised John!Great Crested Grebe
