Thank you George, Phil and Carsten. That beak is pretty wicked when it's coming towards you at high speed! Wild indeed Phil, very, very wild!!!

Lots of good walks on the Glenlivet Estate Phil! The Crown Estate website is down at the moment or I'd tell you the walk number. He's on the road to the place I took 3 of the pics on here from! I don't really want to give a map reference to him here!

I've seen your request for private messaging in the forum (which I would support)....unfortunately from my recollection of the last time it was raised this topic will likely become a major debate with little outcome...

I maybe being presumptious here, but if you were trying to send me some details about our friend's location, I will happily put my email address in my profile and then remove it later.... but I'll wait to hear from you here first...

This shot reminds me of a critique on another site where a photographer from Iceland said my landscape was just like his country...I in return thanked him and said "ah but you do not have haggis or cappercaillies", to which he replied ...I am sorry if you are offended I will remove my comments, LOL. Great bird and so typically Scottish. Well done.

Thanks Doug. I've often seen caper from a distance but this was my first encounter with a **** guarding his territory, and one I'll treasure.
I've yet to meet a truly wild haggis Wink
