Where the trout are
Wasnt really that hard to find it, as
5th fence post after the wee stunted tree! (Might be european larch, but not sure!)
is almost centre off the image, and they have a liking to sitting on posts, though the shot was taken at 600mm so was a fair distance away.

Last week I took a walk up river to see if the little plovers were back, and yes there they were on the same patch off gravel as last year
so waited a few day for the weather to dull a bit before sticking the waders on and set off with the camera gear in a rucksack. when I got there I found them on a little island which allowed me to get into the water and get some nice low angles images, here are a couple of this pretty rare Scottish breeding bird.

Little Ringed Plover.
