Here are some photo's from my recent trip to the Aigas Field Centre in the Scottish Highlands. Funny how my best shots always seem to be of subjects I can see everyday at home.One of my personal favourites this time was the Pied Wagtail shot. However I did manage to crack the Bottlenose Dolphins this time, a few dolphin faces this time, rather than fins and tails! I was also pleased with the Wildcat which is one of the females in the Aigas captive breeding programme. Given the low light levels and wire fencing of the enclosure I think this one is pretty nice. I still have a few more to work through so check again soon if you like what you see.
