Changes to this blog and a new website

Over the next few weeks and possibly months I'm making changes to the layout of this blog and building a new website, so things are likely to move, disappear and/or re-appear.

My new website address is:

This web site is about the wildlife, particularly the mammals, of the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve area in the north west Highlands of Scotland, UK; and the equipment I use to search for them, which is chiefly trail cameras.

I hope you find the site useful and informative; and please contact me if you have any questions that I haven't already covered.
