Early August saw most of the local specialities continue to show well, highlights included:


An early morning encounter with an Otter on the River Spey - worth getting up at 4am for!


Our mammal day-list record of 11 being equalled (Otter, Rabbit, Bank Vole, Brown Hare, Mountain Hare, Roe Deer, Red Deer, Reindeer, Sika Deer, Red Squirrel and Mountain Goat)


Our local juvenile Ospreys being seen to fish successfully by themselves for the first time - just as well, as their parents will abandon them any day now and fly off to Africa, leaving them to find their own way!


Great views of Dolphins at the Moray Firth (see pic), so close that we could hear them 'snorting' in air between dives!
