    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Liesbet, it must have been wonderful to see them in Alaska, especially when you get a chance to see bears catching them! We do not have any bears here and Eivor watched with great interest whilst he was on the lead. The salmon leap up the rivers and waterfalls from June to September to spawn in the Northern Highlands here :o) xxx
