LATEST IMAGES - OUTER HEBRIDES1
Visiting the Outer Hebrides in Winter was a new experience for both of us. Having enjoyed our trips in the Spring we wanted to experience the Western Isles in all their moods. Surprisingly the temperature was not much different than in May with every day being different. Two days out of the fortnight were idyllic with blue skies, no wind and relatively warm temperatures. Of course we had days of rain and extremely strong winds but this allowed us to catch up with editing our pictures and enjoying our lovely converted black house accommodation. Greylag geese were to be found all over North Uist where we spent most of our time but they were quite nervous and usually walked away from the car whenever we stopped. However occasionally a few would stay close enough for us to manage some images. The Western Isles hold the only remaining wild Greylag population in the UK.
