3rd November Eagley awaiting
Well today was a little different. our guests were really keen to see a white tailed sea eagle so we went on a mission. The weather was not kind as we set of with a very wet day. We looked in the usual places to no avail. We did see a male and female hen harrier. Lovely. Through the hills and glens we went in search of the white tailed eagles, lots of red deer and waders on the loch shore. Redshank, dunlin, greenshank, curlew, a good flock of turnstone with ringed plover and oystercatcher. The day improved and the buzzards started to fly, another hen harrier and a real treat of two great northern divers, one of which rose up out of the water in a display pose. We stopped at what we call eagle corner to scan the trees, One of the guests spotted a white tailed eagle on the tree Fantastic. Another found higher upon another tree. lovely to see and special for our guests. Mission accomplished Delighted and loosing day light we moved off. The a little trouble. The minibus lost power. We pulled off the road and called the garage. while waiting we had a cuppa and cake. watched a golden eagle and another white tailed eagle lovely. Mini bus now in the garage, hope its a simple problem. We still had a good day out.
