I've found that spending time watching and photographing birds really gives me a lot of enjoyment and, perhaps more importantly, it really helps me relax as I can only think about what's ahead of me.


Birds, in their many forms, constantly amaze me with their intelligence, ability to adapt and their often very amusing behaviour.


I think I might have to confess to being a bit of a 'birder' now.  So much to see and learn about birds and Scotland is proving to be a great place to begin my new hobby.


Of course, I often have my camera with me so these are some of my favourite bird 'moments' which I'll be adding to as often as I can!
