Roe deer


Roe deer are a common sight in the area, varying from fleeting glimpses of a disappearing rear-end as the deer scamper into the undregrowth to longer views as they contentedly nibble in our gardens during winter and spring (and frustratingly for us remove the flower heads from our prize blooms). But I think most who saw this pair close to the main road were suitably enchanted. The fawn was just a few hours old and still a bit uncertain on its feet but instinctively knew how to suckle. The doe seemed to feel fairly safe as there's a high wall between herself and where I was standing and the pair returned to this spot for several days.

Spring sunset

Looking towards Mull
This view is from the layby/viewpoint at the south end of Benderloch. Looking across Ardmucknish Bay to the hills of the Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides.You can make out the cliffs of the south-east coast. The darker spit on the right is the opposite side of the bay to the south of Lochnell Castle.
