Bird Watching in Speyside (2/7)


Here are some of my photographs taken on a bird watching holiday in Scotland near Aviemore with Speyside Wildlife during February 2002.






Mark with his new pair of binoculars before we'd worked out how to put the strap on them. Not much good in the case for quick access!








Here I am standing by the old bridge in Carrbridge which was built in 1717. Fortunately they have built a new bridge for the traffic.







This was our final stop on the first day, at the edge of Insh Marshes, an RSPB reserve near Kingussie and a good area for geese and ducks. The building on the mound in the distance is Ruthven Barracks.







During the holiday I found out just how much better a telescope was for serious bird watching compared to binoculars.







Usually the birds we saw were too far away to photograph successfully but on our second day I just managed to catch this red grouse at Lochindorb before it ran off.
