The wonderful sight of Greylags taking flight
A moody looking Lairig Ghru
Close encounter with a buzzrd on the bike
A lovely sunny afternoon by Loch Garten
Cloud over The Cairngorms slowly clearing
So many geese!
It was a nice afternoon in The Cairngorms, the rain clearing by early afternoon. A nice bike ride over to Loch Garten. Plenty of wildlife, you don't really need to walk far from any track or road to see the abundance of wildlife in this part of the world. The Greylag Geese have just arrived in the north. Today I saw a big flock of 60+. Always a fantastic sight and sound as they take to the air. Look to the skies and you will see lots this time of year. Later in the day there was a very inquisitive buzzard heading straight toward me on the bike. He eventually took his perch for a photo. Loch Garten was the final destination today. Apparently there was a big flock of Mute Swans landed here just a couple of days ago. Well none today but hey, can't be too greedy :)
