Ardnamurchan, Common Seals and Herons

Here are some photos and a couple of videos that I took in April in Ardnamurchan that I have just come across.
Better late than never!

Common Seals being lazy!

Getting comfy!




At first these seals were a bit wary of us but we were on the other side of the water on a rock at the bottom of a hill. If we didn't move too fast they were fine with us being there but kept their eyes on us incase we moved any closer!



This was the particular Heron that I watched from the hide we set up, it was slowly hunting for some tasty treats in the water!

Gambia, March 2011

I went to Gambia in March with uni for 2 weeks, it was great but very hot! Apart from the night life I did manage to get some wildlife photographs. It has taken me a while to get them up because I lost my memory card with them on! Thankfully I have managed to retreive my pictures and here are a few that I took while I was there.

We had a photo competition while we were there, we had to enter unedited photos that used a bit of imagination and work to get, i entered this one and came in the top three with it :)


Green Vervet - particularly like this picture because of the light on the monkeys face and it seems as though it is in deep thought

African Monarch Butterfly



This is one of the watering holes that me and my group did a project on, we observed the behaviour of wildlife at watering holes and the effects of disturbance.
