Salmon and Sea Trout, Scotland, Late October

This selection of photos are the better (sharper) ones from about 12 hours (3 days) of fish watching. It is hard to appreciate the colours and markings of the Salmon without a camera as the fish are only airborne for half a second or so. I also didn't know that much about Salmon before sitting down with them and was surprised at the differing sizes of fish, colours and markings. A few Sea trout were also jumping up the weir and i have only named the ones that i am confident with.

Leaping Salmon have just joined my exclusive list of yearly must see wlidlife events alongside Spring Goshawks, Winter Geese and Migration Watchpoints.
