Visit to RSPB Troup Head

CliffMy daughter and I have just returned from visiting the RSPB Troup Head on the Moray coast of Scotland and can recommend it to anyone interested in our seabird population. At this time of year the Gannets and Razorbills are once again clamouring for nesting sites on these spectaculour cliffs. I had hoped to get some photographs for future paintings, sadly I think to get the close up photographs I would really like; I will have to splash out on a longer lens. This site is not for people affected by vertigo and my own nervousness was made worse watching my daughter leaning out into space. I searched in vain for the Puffins although Kirsty did capture a rather blurred picture which she insists are Puffins.

I become a full time artist next week so hopefully I will find time to keep my blog more current and my output should improve markedly. The Falconry Fair looms large (May 3rd & 4th) and I have everything mounted and framed ready to go, I am really looking forward to the whole experience.
