This evening, I am posting a selection of images from my various visits to the Isle of Skye, off the West of Scotland.

Skye is a very poplar tourist destination offering a wide range interests and activities including, bird watching, geology, hiking, climbing, fishing, painting, photography, history, Dunvegan Castle, seascapes, food and much more.

Here is an image taken about 5.00am at Broadford.

Today, I am posting winter images obtained during my walk this walk morning around the snowy landscape of South Glasgow. Overnight, winter returned with a combination of a good covering of powderysnow and sub zero temperatures. This provides opportunities to take a fresh look at the locality and observe people and wildlife managing-even having some fun- in the wintry environment. Most of the images below were taken in and around Rouken Glen, a country park popular with locals.

Here is a father and child having fun tobogganing in the snow.

Squirrel with no tail

Tail-less Squirrel

The garden (back yard) of my property is increasingly becoming a wildlife reserve with squirrels, foxes, hedgehogs and many varieties of birds.

In recent time we have noticed a very strange phenomenon as manifested in animals without tails. We have recently become aware of a grey squirrel without a key appendage and last year we had a young fox with similar disfigurement. Why these deformities have occurred in such a compact area is a complete mystery. The animals seem otherwise to be in good health. Read more on Deformed Wild Animals…
