So many reasons, but here is just one reason incorporating many . . . what am I waffling on about - the Wildlife - that is what!!!!!!!
We have a rich abundance of Wildlife of Wester Lix and the following pictures are some of them . . .
Please note that whilst I am a photographer alot of these pictures are just grabbed shot and low resolution jpegs so the quality is not up to my usual standard . . .
A Buzzard in the Snow
One of several Male Blackbirds
A Grey Heron
Duck and Ducklings on our Lochan
Grey Heron in Flight
Sheep and Deer
Mum and Ducklings on a daily pilgrimage to my bird table.
Red Stag actually taken on Rannoch Moor - but we have a herd visit us regurarly
One of our several Red Squirrels
My little friend - he sits on this post every morning
This Red Squirrel actually jumped on the Jay which hurriedly flew off
Stalking Heron after Frogs
One of our Toads
A very young Jay
And last but not least some pictures taken by one of our guests of our Otters . . . we are thinking of maybe building a hide to get closer . . .
This top picture is actually two Otters sliding down together on a slide they had made!
We have many small birds as you will see as well as Tawny Owls and occasionally the sighting of a Golden Eagle.
We also have foxes and stoats, but I have yet to get a picture and there has been a Pine Martin seen in the vicinity . . . so your challenge if you come and stay is to get pictures of the Wildlife that we so far haven't managed to!
