Islay Magic

March 6, 2016 at 8:34 pm

Two weeks on Islay is never long enough but with good winter weather and plenty of wildlife to see this February was one of the most rewarding winter visits we have ever had. The Geese always provide a spectacle for the birdwatchers and this weeks gallery includes many of my favourites from our visit plus action shots from Islay’s special member of the Crow family the Chough. A visit to Jura in snowy conditions produced the greatest number of Red Deer that we have ever seen. These were driven off the hills by the snow and produced some good group photos.Click here

The big event back home this week has been the four inches of snow that fell on Friday morning. It resulted in 35 House Sparrows and 36 Goldfinches coming to the garden together with the first Siskin for some time.
