We are just back from a short break in Scotland. We all love Scotland and Dumfries and Galloway is an ideal place to visit as on a good day it is only four hours from home. The scenery in this part of Scotland is spectacular and the wildlife amazing. We were extremely lucky this time to find where the red squirrels hang-out having not seen any for the last 4 years! The red deer stags were also truly magnificent, we missed the red deer rut by about a week but when you work around our busiest year ever for wedding photography and the school holidays, you grab what you can!
These squirrels can be found at the Kirroughtree Visitor Centre and come to feed right in front of a purpose built hide located by the car park entrance. This is fantastic spectator sport, I could have spent all week watching them. Most of these photographs were taken with the Tamron 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD which I’m happy to say is an amazing lens for the money, the rest were taken with the Nikkor 70-200mm F/4G ED VR.
