The circle of life and improving weather!


We arrived at work this morning to find the 2 blue tit chicks we thought we had saved proving us wrong! A shame but the whole nature thing up here is raw and visceral. We’ve seen so much life and indeed death since we’ve been up in the highlands . As previously mentioned it’s rare for us to go out and not stumble across some new flora or fauna and or a corpse or two.

Day was spent mowing the vast expanse of grass that we have. It’s a never ending job but when newly cut it does brighten the place up! Rae continues to be a midge buffet!

A Siskin apparently 🤷‍♀️ The top picture I believe is young thrush?
