Sea pink at Arisaig earlier in the year. The colour of sea pink against a pastel blue sky just spells out summer to me. I love it.

The Moon or common jellyfish is abundant around the Scottish coast at the moment. They have saucer-shaped bodies with four bold purple-coloured circular reproductive organs at the centre. Their food is actively hunted using stinging tentacles. Don't worry though their stings aren't powerful enough to penetrate human skin. 🐡 #scotnature #scottishnaturalheritage #marine #nature #wildlife #sea 📸 : @markunderwater More Moon Jellies at Kyle of Lochalsh, Isle of Skye.

Having spent a fair amount of time on Arran recently I thought I would feature a few pieces of equipment I have used during my trips.
Here is my tent sitting in the sunrise between Bein Nuis and Beinn Tarsuinn.
Being no wall flower I like to have that bit more space and prefer my kit to be in with me where I can.
To that end I use the @vango_outdoor Banshee Pro 300. I looked at the 200 but for the sake of a few hundred grams in weight I opted for the larger size.
It’s not the lightest to carry at around 2.8kg but the space inside is perfect and you don’t need to worry about the rest of your kit being outside if you are travelling solo.
I may search for something lighter in the future but with protection from the elements, insects of Scotland my priority... this was the one for me. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

A lost whooper Swan at Sango Sands earlier this year. Probably heading home. Wonder what he's upto now?

The Glasgow fossorial water voles (live away from water) have had a lot of media attention recently which I hope doesn't mean that more folk will be photographing them as their habitat is quite fragile. A real success story which is great to witness. .

Jack is loving the beaches in Lewis. Port of Ness beach, gorgeous day, even if a little overcast.

The seldom heard song of a male snow bunting calling from a rock high in the Cairngorms. Snow buntings breed around the Arctic from Scandinavia to Alaska. During June 2011, a team of scientists and volunteers scaled mountains in the Cairngorms and the Highlands, such as Ben Nevis and Ben Alder, to listen out for singing males. The survey involved searching 58 sites covering an impressive 12,000ha – and analyses published this year show that the first estimate for the national snow bunting population was 60 pairs. They are more widespread in winter in the north and east when residents are joined by continental birds. #scotnature #scottishnaturalheritage #nature #wildlife #bird #birdsofinstagram #snowbunting

Fledged Swallows.

Young birds are becoming more and more evident in the countryside, having recently fledged from their nests.

Before we know it, these two siblings will be off on their way to Africa to spend the winter.

I'm in East Lothian for a couple of days which is always lovely (especially this time without the East Coast Haar!). My mum and I found this juvenile heron at Seafield Pond by Dunbar (there were lots of herons). This was one scruffy kid who had no fear of people and wandered around for ages quite close to us. Not entirely sure it was able to fly as yet, but it made a half-hearted attempt here! .
