Updates and posts to this web site are delayed due to ongoing problems I am having with internet access. This is because of the degradation of the existing phone line infrastructure which it is hoped will be upgraded by the end of 2017.

Red Deer Stags (Cervus elaphus) with antlers in velvet

The weather has turned bright, sunny and hot in the last couple of days.

Yesterday morning I got some shots of these Red Deer stags enjoying the fresh grass and trying to stay cool.

Flies were making them very restless.

Their antlers are forming well under a luxurious coat of velvet and should be fully grown in a couple of months.

While the stags are lounging about hinds will be in the forest and on the hills giving birth to their calves.

This web site is about the wildlife, particularly the mammals, of the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve area in the north west Highlands of Scotland, UK; and the equipment I use to search for them, which is chiefly trail cameras.

I provide a technical support and parts service for the Ltl Acorn range of cameras and the income from this provides for the upkeep of this site and the purchase of cameras for my own surveying.

I hope you find the site useful and informative; and please contact me if you have any questions that I haven't already covered.
