Male Black Grouse at his lek
Into week 5 of these troubled times. It was a week of virtually unbroken sunshine, temperatures like summer and hardly any winds. A fine week to use your rights for daily exercise. Living in The Cairngorms National Park we can get to some beautiful low level walks and bike rides direct from the doorstep. The roads were deserted again, so very enjoyable cycling. Oddly enough towards the end of the week there were a few more cars about. Wildlife wonderful, as ever. With Spring time well under way it's a vital period for ground nesting birds especially. We had an high level fire risk across much of The Highlands with no rain for a long time. With so few people about there were only a  handful of fires, thankfully none in the Cairngorms area. More photos from the week.
