Thursday 6th July

A great start to the day with mountain hares in a field and a white tailed eagle in the tree. Our next stop was also great with a golden eagle sitting on a rock. fantastic with the light on it. the telescope gave us perfect views. The threat of rain from the forecast didnt appear. a couple of showers but warm in the morning. lots of common seals around. and one atlantic grey seal. We had several lovely sights of female hen harriers. including a food drop to a chick. The otter was very hard to find. my 1.30 one didnt appear today. Day off I suppose. We did find one later and had a really good time watching him as he came out to eat a very large flat fish. As always the day went too fast and we headed off to the ferry. Jacqui
