Ptarmigan at A' Mharconaich in the Drumochter hills

Loch an Eilein

Looking towards Ben Alder and Loch Ericht from Geal Charn

Cairngorms above Loch Morlich

Flower buds of Mossy saxafrage (Saxifraga hypnoides)

Bogbean (Menyanthes trifoliata)

Mountain Sibbaldia (Sibbaldia procumbens)

Woolly Willow (Salix lanata)

Roseroot (Sedum rosea)

Spent last week in the Cairngorms. A very active week of outdoor persuits including watersports, fishing, walking, skydiving (treetop height) as well as birdwatching and looking for plants. Climbed four Monros in the Drumochter hills. Weather was warm and dry all week so I managed to get to see many new species of plants and some good bird species.
