Sunday 6th May

Mike and I took the tour today. This was a private hire for a family group. The weather was perfect, not too hot and Mulls wildlife was very obliging On our first stop we saw white tailed eagles sitting in the tree near their nest. Common seals that were the delight of our youngest guest. Heading for loch na keal and two white tailed eagles on the islands.While we were watching them an otter came out  on the island quite close to them. then a great spot from one of our guests of two otters. a mum and cub swimming just across the bay from us. they then swam across to the islands. As we turned to check the hills behind a couple of golden eagles flew over the top. Lunch and a white tailed eagle on the nest fussing over newly hatched chicks Our day continued to be good for the wildlife with Golden eagle in the mountains. one on the Aerie and the other coming in. brilliant views. Red deer strolling in the hills. We had a short walk on a forest track and a puddle was full of tadpoles, pond skaters and common newts. Hen harrier, warblers, waders, swallows, great northern divers were just a few more wonderful birds seen today. Great spotting from the family and a lovely day out. Jacqui
