On Monday, I welcomed Elsbeth and David on our woodland bird walk experience in Ballindalloch. The Silver birch woodland came alive as we strolled under the canopy.
We observed busy coal tits, great tits, and a song thrush as they prepared for breeding. We also got spectacular close up views of buzzards. At first, we heard distant “meowing” high in the sky – that’s when the soaring cat idea came to mind. Then one swooped down and settled in the crown of a tree no more than 15 metres in front of us. What a sight!
Once we reached the summit of our walk, we imagined what life was like when this old mill was in its prime.
I can not think of a better way to enjoy a sunny morning than to spend time in nature. Elsbeth and David agree! Thank you both for choosing Wild Alba Tours. I hope to see you again on another tour in the future. Safe and happy travels from all the Wild Alba team.
