April 2016...

We had a great afternoon yesterday doing reptile surveys in some of the wilder parts of Mull.

'Make the Adder Count in 2016' is a long-running survey aiming to encourage springtime counts of Adders, with the objectives of informing local conservation projects/interests and gathering a long-term surveillance dataset.

We recorded three Adders on our 'reptile plot' along with two Viviparous Lizards out basking in the spring sunshine!

Our Photography Workshop bookings continue to come in for the year ahead. For anyone who is keen to increase their knowledge and field skills on the practice of outdoor photography, you can view our workshops here -

Amazing winterscapes at the end of April!

The island was solid white for a day or two, creating amazing scenery...

Last week on a Wildlife Photography Workshop we had memorable views of a male Hen Harrier on the wing, surrounded by the snow-laden mountains on Mull!

I was keen to capture a photo of this bird along with his snowy environment. The crisp morning light reflecting off the snow cover made the Hen Harriers magnificent plumage even more vibrant.

A sensational bird...

We have a very exciting announcement coming soon...
