Friday August 4th,

Frustrating start today as two of my guests couldnt get across from Oban in time. the ferry was cancelled. It was such a shame they missed out on a trip. I hope they had a good day. My other guests were a party of 6, so I went to collect them from their accomodation. A good start with red brested merganser, common seals,terns,common gulland oystercatches. A slight detour and a white tailed eagle on the shore, it flew streight towards the trees in front of us, shortly joined by the other. little grebe and more mergansers. Sleeping otters on the islands with the seals and a cuppa. Moving on and two otters spotted, we spent about an hour and a half watching them. Our day continued with lots to see including, wheatear, meadow pipits, teal and golden plover. it was a lovely day. Jacqui
