There where a number of things I wanted to see on my trip they where Crested Tit, Crossbill, Seals and Dolphin, I managed 3 out of the 4 with a few extras thrown in, I didn't get pictures of them all, but what I did get I will put on my next few posts.
Golspie was around 4 miles from where we stayed in Dornoch and prior to going we had read and seen photos on the web of seals, I wasn't holding out much hope of seeing anything, but with around 90 seals sunbathing you couldn't miss them.
Here are a few shots from when I managed to get close to them at low tide, I am taking it that these are common seals.
All photos taken with Nikon D70 + Sigma 170-500mm
Other sightings in this area where Sandwich Tern, Cormorant, Eider duck, Oyster Catcher, Curlew, Goldeneye, I only managed shots of a couple of these which I will post later in the week once I have been through all the pics :).
Hope you liked the photos.
