Not my photo, taken by Ian, who runs a wild life spotting boat out of Gairloch.
Taken in his garden. Lucky so and so.
In the garden this afternoon?

Is the cheque in the post Sheps?
Love that pine marten doc. Very jealous. I often wonder if people who have much rarer garden visitors ever take them for granted, or if they thank their lucky stars every day
Wanted to push this tthread up again.
Taken in Ballater, at MILs 2016
Picture of a Nuthatch taken in my garden last August.
There are some cracking photo's on here! Sheps are you on Flickr?
...and a pair of Goldfinches taken during a frost last December
A few poorly zoomed pictures courtesy of my iPhone 6 at the British Wildlife Centre in Surrey.. highly recommend. The native wildlife in our country is underrated.
Really gorgeous Mark. You're right - we have a wealth of fabulous wildlife here. I think it's sad that so many people never experience it for real, but at least with places like that, it gives them a taster, and will maybe prompt them into exploring their surroundings more.
Lovely photos Bob. The frosty goldfinches would have made a lovely card! I was lucky enough to get a couple of nuthatches appearing regularly in my garden last winter. They're not common in Scotland, so I'm hoping they keep visiting again this winter. We have a small National Trust garden nearby, so they're probably resident in there.
Cracking red squirrel pic doc. I've posted this before, but this one was waiting in a tree as I headed off to do Beinn Dearg in Blair Atholl two years ago.
Little juvenile wren has been visiting recently so I managed to get a couple of pix. They were through the kitchen window, so not brilliant. Enjoyed watching his/her antics, especially the day it was tussling with a worm in among the hedging along the boundary fence
