The rabbit hunters

Louis and Jana are on a mission........
.........to catch those rabbits!

Incoming!




Charging through the gorse bushes is not good for Louis's coat.....nor is it good for my fingers when I have to pick out all the prickly stuff!



The hills across the firth still have a little snow on them


Below are some of the birds in my mum's garden. The goldfinches are particularly lovely but I couldn't get as near as I wanted to and the shots are a bit blurry. I'll try and rig up some sort of hide. The starlings were much braver and it was lovely to see just how colourful their plumage is up close.






No post would be complete without a running Jana.

Beautiful birds! At least Louis had fun even though it's hard working keeping his coat nice and clean. :)

Really enjoyed visiting you all - you have lots of fun & lovely photo's, especaily loved the snow shots. And, of course I'm curious to know what part of Scotland is yours.

Best wishes, and pats & pets to the pups
