We have often walked in the RSPBs Wood of Cree, but decided to walk a bit further to Loch Middle.

We watched this Treecreeper for some time building its nest in a gap near the base of a tree

Plenty of logging been going on here

If you stand still in this woods long enough, moss grows up your legs!
