Well it is only February but we had a really good day out yesterday.
I had an otter eating a fish on some rocks just ioffshore at Killiechronan as I went to collect my customers at Craignure.
We soon had a big male otter across the loch and eventually sleeping on Scarisdale rocks.
Further up the coast we had another otter and a female with an advanced youngster very close inshore
Back to Killiechronan where we had an adult white Tailed Sea Eagle swooping into the trees with legs extended, like big birds of prey do.
Lots of Great Northern Divers but a good view of Golden Eagle eluded us but at least 4 0r 5 Hen Harriers didn’t !! Lots of red deer of course too and a good lunch of scones, soup and sandwiches and chocolate cake to finfish !!
Today is another very clear and bright day but very much colder than yesterday.
I think its going to be a good vole year and probably why the harriers were not too difficult to find.
