Day one saw us exploring Insh Marshes,normally good for insects and plants but this year they were in short supply,we did find a number of Scotch Argus and Dark Green Frittilary.
Day three saw us in the Northern Corries of Cairngorm or more specifically Coire-an-t-Sneachda,on reaching the corrie itself we managed to locate a female Ptarmigan with several very young chicks,as we sat down for lunch panic set in as a juvenile Snow Bunting decided to join us, unfortunately after checking our rucksacks for food it moved off before I could get the Camera out.
The final few days of our visit were spent on trips to Channonry Point where we were enthralled by views of at least six Bottlenosed Dolphins just off the point,a sight which is enjoyed on a daily basis by large crowds of people. We also had a trip up the Findhorn Valley for raptors but again they were in short supply and on the the day we only managed to see one Golden Eagle.
All too soon our holidays were at an end but the memories will last forever
