The message Youtube showed when we tried to upload our first piece of HD video.
The ghosts of which you never see become the ghosts of which were never there become the legends that were never told. Sweet dreams anyway.

This afternoon we visited the Ardnamurchan Natural History Centre to meet John Polak for some advice on where to find wildlife on the Peninsula, and for a walk round the centres interactive exhibition. We were privileged to see the first Grey Heron egg of the season, thanks to a live camera link.
After some lunch we headed down to the RSPB's Glenborrodale reserve, a large ancient oak woodland, we found it to be blanketed by ticks, and other insects, so without surprise we found a Slow Worm and a Common Lizard.
Once we returned to the cottage Michael Macgregor came to visit, he further enriched our knowledge of the peninsula, and allowed us to set up a hide to photograph and film the countless Grey Herons which come to feed on the salt-marsh. Normally a simple task, but not today, in order to complete our set goals we have to film key points of our expedition, which meant, in order to set up this hide it took 3 people, 2 cameras, and 2 tripods, all positioned at different locations. Once up, we felt like professionals, although Cain was slightly un-easy due to the increasing threat of a herd of Highland Cattle, who were very curious, licking the guide ropes at one point.
We aim to keep this blog updated everyday for at least this week, we hope you enjoy it.
