New Weekend Dates Announced: Every year I try and improve the wildlife encounters I can offer
people while keeping prices to an affordable level. This year has
been excellent but I have added a few new ones in for next year
which I hope to be even better. Rutting stags in glen coe, a fantastic
new mainland otter location and Iona and surrounding islands including
a epic boat trip top the bill for new and exciting - Click

Wow what a year, We have had some of the most remarkeable wildlife
encounters in the history of loch visions, the beaver topping the
list. Just look at the guest galleries to see what I mean See

November 2013 Newsletter
This Newsletter will be dedicated to two animals, one of which
is the most interesting, exciting and almost biblical animal that
we have the Beaver. The other can do things that baffle medical
science and would save thousands of lives if we could master it
too a solitary wasp.
First the Beaver and boy did they perform for us this year. Both
weekend workshops were a million times better that I could ever
have dreamed of and then on an advanced just to top it all of we
had a close encounter with a kit (very young baby beaver). Once
in a life time stuff sometimes my policy of not taking a
camera so I can concentrate on clients getting the best shots does
hurt. However all the images on this newsletter were taking on an
advanced with a client who had been out with me a lot so was happy
for me to bring my camera, and I am so grateful she did!
You may wander why I am so obsessed with this animal it
features a lot on my facebook page and on numerous newsletters.
There are two main reasons, one is it is just a very very very cool
animal. Anything that can knock down trees with its teeth.
Build beautiful and complex dams.
Has complex social family structures and just looks so comical
sometimes, is in my book a privilege to be around.
Not only that, it is a miracle that they are back so thank you
again to all that have made that happen.
Which leads me on the the second reason I am totally obsessed
next year is a big year for the beavers as the trial stops and the
government need to decided whether to do a full introduction....YES
YES YES YES!!!
So please please write to your local MP and urge them to fully
back a reintroduction of this magnificent animal, this is a great
website for writing to MPs I urge you to get political
This is our chance to make the magic happen!
And magic leads me on to our next star and that is the wee solitary
wasp featured in the next episode of wild motion below. I hope after
you watch the video you are as blown away but how amazing this wasp
is as I was. What is also wonderful is this is a common animal that
can be found across the country yet in its venom it could hold the
secrets to eternal life!

Monthly Episode of Wild Motion -Black Grouse star in Face Off
This was the fist year I had attempted to film and photograph the
black grouse during the world class wildlife spectacle of the lek.
What an animal, the whole thing was so exciting that I wondered
what is better watching a hollywood block buster or this, apart
from having to get up at 3am to see it I would say there is no competition,
the grouse win every time. Thus I hope you enjoy this months enstallement
of Wild Motion - Black Grouse do Face Off! (For those who do not
remember Face Off was an action adventure film starring nicholas
cage and john travolta - they need to watch Grouse to see how it
is really done!)
Previous episodes available below.
Treasire Island - Otter Heaven
I have becomne a little bit obsessed with filming at the moment.
I love it as a medium for telling a story so this months newsletter
was all filmed on the island of Carna where we ran our otter weekend.
What a weekend and you can see all the pics in our guest gallery.
Unfortunately I took no stills so the above image is from last year
in the same location. I hope you enjoy it.
Here it is the first episode in the brand new mini series, I hope
you enjoy. If you subscribe to the Loch Visions you tube channel
