June 2015 Red Legged Partridge

Went to look at an old site in the Cotswold Hills where I normally watch Barn Owls.  All quiet, a few distant hares and these Red Legged Partridges.  They look ok though in the late evening sunlight.

June 2015 Common Seal Isle of Skye

Great to see these Common Seals at the Isle of Skye.  They are about to have pups unlike the Grey Seals that give birth in the winter.

June 2015 Pilot Whales Isle of Skye

Had a great find while waiting for an Otter to come along.  I was looking across the loch and saw a big dark fin.  Took a while to realise it was a pod of three pilot whales.  Really excited and they stayed around for at least three days.  Never got to see an Otter but these were more than great compensation!

Great exhale after a dive

June 2015 Willow Warbler bringing in food.

Went to the Isle of Skye and enjoyed the dramatic wildlife.  Still great to get up close to this Willow Warbler bringing in food for its young at the top of Portree harbour.
