I’ve recently returned from the UK, Scotland in fact; it’s one of my favourite places to visit. There’s so much wildlife and stunning scenery there to see that it’s always hard to leave. I’ve had the pleasure of living there for a while in the past and try to get back there as much as possible. This last trip, as always, I stayed in the Tay Valley near Aberfeldy, at my parents’ home. They live in a beautiful spot and get so many birds coming into their garden that I decided to set up a bird hide, to see how many different species I could photograph.

I was expecting six to maybe ten different species but to my surprise there were over twenty. I got some great shots – unfortunately not of all of them, but most. I’ve put together a collection of twelve of them to share with you. I’m not going to list all the camera setting, I’ve just posted the images for you to enjoy. Feel free to ask any questions by using the comments box.

Enjoy.

I hoped you liked the images. It’s amazing what you can see by just setting up a hide and waiting, why not give it a go?
