Hi, and welcome to the spring issue of Country Lifestyle Scotland

It's lambing time at home for the next few weeks and it's not the first time I've been caught lying in the straw trying to get an artistic shot of our fluffy lamb's faces. My pics are never that impressive, so I was interested to read Linda Mellor's tips on capturing wildlife on camera, I'll give her ideas a whirl and see if there is an improvement in the results.

The highlight of this issue for me was visiting the Scottish Greyhound Sanctuary volunteers. With eight leggy lovelies to greet me at the door it was a noisy, doggy, welcome.

These dogs are basically instituationalised by their racing career, and require patience and understanding before they can be rehomed.

The volunteers impressed me with their devotion to the sight-hound breed, nothing was too much trouble in the rehabilitation of this gentle breed that make amazing pets. If you are a dog lover, you can't fail to be touched by the stories attached to each rescue dog. It was difficult to leave without one in my back seat.

As always, feel free to get in touch with feature ideas, I am always happy to hear from readers.
