An eagle friend may have glimpsed me with my Christmas present camera today but its not one of those big lense things, so don’t think I have gone over to the other side. It’s still primarily a spotting day out !! On the trip today we started with an otter at Grasspoint, brief female hen harrier, kestrels etc. Two sea eagles sitting together in a tree which then flew along the shoreline and alighted to mate and make a racket. Then an Iceland gull with rock doves, another sea eagle sitting and its mate flying over to join it, again with much noise. Laterly a good view of a male hen harrier and lots of great northern divers and a black throated earlier. Plus poorish weather but The Island was still wildly and beautifully atomspheric !! Pity more humans don’t have those traits.
