Ptarmigan, Scotland, November 2014
I spent a whole day sitting with a scattered flock of 50 Ptarmigan, a bird that I hadn't really seen properly for many years. They fed and dozed totally oblivious to me often no more than a few meters away.
Red Grouse, Mountain Hare and Helicopter
The Mountain Hare sat upright and looked nervous when a Ptarmigan approached
Rescue helicopter came into the corrie and circled me a few times towards the end of the day.
