Scottish Wildlife in Winter

Best viewed in original sizes


I decided to take off with my cameras to try and capture some images of Scottish Winter Wildlife in their natural environment before the snow melts.
Wanting to maximise my available time I decided to use the services of local expert Marcus Conway on one of his "Ebirder" guided tours.
This turned out to be a great decision, Marcus's friendly manner, superb wildlife knowledge when balanced with his extensive photographic skills, made this trip a great success.
If you are planning a photographic trip to the Highlands, then I would definitely recommend checking out what Marcus can offer.
His website is as follows ..... http://ebirder.net/
