Red squirrels are synonymous with Scotland but are still under threat from their invasive grey cousin. We spent a morning in Neil McIntyte's hide photographing these arboreal acrobats and thinking about all the encounters we've had with them over the years.

The tundra specialist we'd been searching for.

It took many months and many trips up to the snow topped peaks of the Cairngorms until we eventually found a small covey of Ptarmigan in an unusual place. Follow the link below to read about that amazing day.
