Today was spent driving from Dumfries and Galloway to the Ardnamurchan Peninsular. As such we didn't experience a great deal of wildlife interest today. Willow Warblers continue to cascade their songs wherever we go and Wood Warblers were trilling away alongside the A82 as we travelled along the length of Loch Lomond and the Trossocks. The first apparent pure Hooded Crow of the trip was spotted against the stunning backdrop of Glencoe. Carpets of Bluebells are frequently colouring the road verges and Lady's Smock and other common flowers abound. Ardnamurchan wildlife to date includes plenty of Common Seals, Roe and Red Deer, Red-breasted Merganser, Common Sandpiper and the first of the midges!

Siskins are common and well-
spread throughout Scotland
and it is very much an every-day bird,
but I can't help but continually
stop and stare at these charismatic
