I spent the 24th – 26th February in the Scottish Highlands with professional photographer, Pete Walkden. The plan was to photograph Crested Tit, but due to exceptionally mild weather, our plans had to change.
Crested Tits will only come to feeding stations in cold weather. Once the weather becomes warm, they take to the tree canopy, as they much prefer to feed on insects, than they do on nuts and fat balls.
So I decided that I would try for Ptarmigan and Red Squirrel, so Pete put the plan in place.
The following few images hopefully show that my time spent in one of my favourite parts of the UK was a success. Thanks Pete for a great few days
