Red Deer (Cervus elaphus) at Cattadale
We have decided to put together some new photographic displays at the Centre for next year, using projections and various screens rather than the traditional wallboards. I am going to try putting together one that shows Islay's mammals - hence I have been out trying to get some more shots of deer to add to our collection.
Came across a group of Red hinds just north of the Cattadale river today, and did a John McNab-style stalk (for around 400 yards on my belly) to get up close enough for these shots. Shame there were no stags with them - but I guess that will have to wait for another day...
