Thursday May 10th

Another lovely day well after the morning rain anyway.

Again our visits to the white tailed eagle nest was good. we can just see the chicks as the leaves are now out. they are growing well.

We were just about to leave when both adults flew. Great to see these huge birds.

Our morning continued with hen harrier in the glen and golden eagle over the hills.none at the nest sites today.

Afternoon gave us more white tailed eagles, stone chat and reed bunting.

Lots of swallows, house martins and sand martins.

Still great Northern divers around looking very smart in their breeding plumage.

An otter on a rock entertained us for a while at the end of the day and seals.

A big surprise was a barn owl. we were a little late today but nowhere near dark. gorgeous.
