    I have been really busy with wildlife here in the Highlands of Scotland, cold weather and some snow is making all the wildlife really active, going to find a Capercaillie tomorrow,

    Good luck tomorrow Gordon. Maybe if you get a chance you could tell us a bit more about your interests and how you got into wildlife photography in the meet and greet section.

    Hamish stole my line about making a splash, so I'll just mumble something incoherent and shuffle off to my hide...

    Thanks everyone,
    Just in the door from my feeding station and out looking for the Capercaillie i watched last week, as for the Osprey pictures most were taken with a 300mm lens and a couple with a 200mm lens, i guide people to Ospreys so i have more than enough pictures, the biggest problem is not the Ospreys..... its getting some light so early in the morning, a really poor summer here.
    I was getting 7 to 10 different Ospreys almost every morning, which made it in its first year, the best place to photography Ospreys in the UK, the hide is permanent and dug into the ground with room for six, photographers, i dug out 27 tonnes of earth by hand last winter, but it gave some people award winning images that they keep for Magazines, Newpaper articles, RSPB and Competitions ect.
    Right now i am working on wild Otters, Capercaillie, Cresties ect........ so it keeps me busy.
    Sorry for the long winded reply, but i have tried to answer some of the questions.
    Thanks Everyone and i hope to add more pictures of Ospreys and other wildlife from this area.
