Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

A picturesque and beautiful film study of wild life in the western Highlands of Scotland, on the Ardnamurchan peninsula. By the sea, herons, oyster catchers, and ringer lovers tend their young; on the hill, the wild cat prowls, the fox preys upon rabbits and the eagle chick waits to be fed. Exciting sequences include an antler battle.
