First tour tales

Here goes, the first of many. 2/5/16 Today`s tour saw 4 seasons in one day. Between showers we had a great view of a white tailed eagle flying close started our day. with scurrying ringed and golden plover together  a few feet away. Lots of feathered summer visitors around now with large numbers of meadow pipits and wheatear. The otter on the rock gave us great joy as the rain poured down it clearly enjoyed the freshwater shower. rolling on its back with feet in the air. Highlight for me was the short eared owl not close but great to see.
