A walk on the wild side with a gamekeeper/deerstalker in the Scottish Highlands

What you can't see from there is that this blogsite has a new dashboard. When I log on, it screams at me "BLOGGER HAS A NEW LOOK!" This translates into is "YOU CAN NO LONGER WRITE IN PARAGRAPHS, DIMWIT." Ahh, progress.....
The pictures show what I woke to this morning. The only thing that matched this sullen weather was the sullen faces of my colleagues when I arrived at work. This does not bode well for our grouse.
There is also a shot of a Green Plover (we call them 'teuchats') and her young. It wasn't long before they were back under their down duvet. Poor mites.
I've been a gamekeeper on this estate for 20 years. I love this place and I love doing what I do.
A while back, my family and I were given the chance to spend 3 months on a Kalahari Game reserve as part of a 'cultural exchange'. It was a fantastic experience and I sent home blogs to share it with family and friends. Somehow they persuaded me to continue blogging on our return. And here I am !
I reckon I've got the best job in the world and I hope you enjoy this glimpse into my world.
I ask only one thing:- love it or hate it, please leave a comment.
PS It seems if you DO want to leave a comment, you'll have to do it under the 'anonymous' tag. Technology, dontcha love it...
