Monday 18th July

Day off today for a special birthday. My friend Joan had arrived yesterday completely unexpected by me, lovely surprise. Our day started lazily, and of course we wanted to go out wildlife spotting. The weather was very wet and misty as we headed out to Dervaig for a north run. We had a really great view of a bedraggled golden eagle on a post on top of a hill. We watched as it slowly dried out and finally flew. lovely. I had a very lovely birthday. jacqui
