Tuesday 7th May

A cold day today with some heavy showers almost snow. Loads to see though

White tailed eagles near the nest and a red deer running around the fields at the back, Our cuppa stop was a bit wet to start with but the sun came out. A white tailed eagle flew across the hill, we saw it later when the sun shone. Our morning continued with more eagles. lunch stop was brilliant with three juvenile golden eagles interacting.

A reed bunting and its mate in a very small reed bed,

An otter later lunch, swimming along, we parked up and waited . it swan towards us and came out on the rocks . rolling and stretching.

Afternoon nice and sunny. Still cold but the views were fantastic. really clear air. We could see the beaches on Tiree.

Great northern divers displaying and a golden eagle on the hill. What a day.
