Quick report from the Wild Wonders of urban Scotland. Myself and fellow WWE photographer Mark Hamblin took off in search of roe deer in deepest Glasgow - a cemetery to be precise. Within 15 minutes the gravediggers informed us that the deer were no more - moved on due to harrassment by people and dogs. Oh s**t!
But we’re adaptable types so we headed off down the motorway to fix our lenses on the UK’s biggest starling (Sturnus vulgaris) roost - 2 million birds cramming into a thin strip of woodland - just next to one of Britain’s busiest highways. OK so it’s noisy and smelly but what a spectacle!! Now, this is very much work in progress - we’ve not yet nailed what we’re after but here’s a quick starter to give you a feel for it.
