Boot and bus tour today with both Jacqui and Mike.

The day began with really  clear view of a white tailed eagle sitting in a tree close to its nest, an early otter fishing then snoozing, Mid morning stop and golden eagle sitting on a ledge giving us fantastic views as it crossed the hillside in front of us. The sun shone showing the golden colours of its head and feathers not a bad place for a cuppa and biscuits.

After lunch our walk took us past a puddle on a track, full of tadpoles, water beetles, pond skaters and two newts. Enjoying the call of a cuckoo and several warblers we were about to head back and a golden eagle flew very close. Coffee stop gave us a male hen harrier very close, red deer and a single long tailed tit.
