Boot and bus today

The weather today was better than forecast, Our journey to Croggan was lovely through ancient woodlands with the sunlight through oak and birch trees. On the way we saw buzzards, red breasted merganser, common seals willow warbler and lots of swallows. A white throat flew onto a nearby gorse bush. Our lunch stop before the walk was highlighted with an otter fishing in the bay. Low cloud was giving rain across the bay but we stayed dry. we enjoyed the walk through the woodlands with lots of baby birds around the trees. blue and great tits everywhere. Tree pipits flitting around in the branches. As we came out of the wood and onto the headland a golden eagle flew. It was being mobbed by a kestrel and two hooded crows.It eventually came across the hill in front of us showing its golden head. beautiful. Lots of wild flowers such as orchids, sundew, butterwort and water forget me not.  Red deer on the hills and a buzzard. Lots of eider on the loch and skylarks singing. Canada geese, greylag geese and oystercatcher. Lapwing and curlew. lots to see and a great walk. Jacqui
