Well maybe you can have too many ospreys, so here instead some alternative Scottish wildlife.

One from 2009, but I wasn't able to upload these until earlier this year, so there are quite a few that I have either in snow or not that will eventually get an outing.

Great shot of a very illusive bird.

Thanks all.

Trying to use the mushy foreground to illustrate the secretive nature rather than those I had previously loaded of the bird in the open.

Will be more ospreys, and I think Lee and Jonah both have more to load, but felt it was time for a change.

Trying to get some shots of the goldfinch in the garden but they won't play at the moment Sad Typical.

Cracking nature shot, just goes to show how diverse your back catolouge of shots is when you can fall back on a caper shot Smile
For the next 6 months I will be mostly uploading ospreys Wink
