Looks like an incredible vole year in the hills. Well worth a bit of climbing.

(Aberdeenshire wildlife)

If anyone noticed my very long winded, boring facebook post yesterday (Orca Stonehaven Now) you may be interested in the vlog I have just uploaded about last nights encounter with the s27 orca pod.
Finished editing at 4.30 am so please share, like and subscribe!!!!
Also just shows what can turn up if you spend time at the sea. If interested tickets still available for my Seabird and Cetacean Wildlife photography workshops.
