I had a very nice and keen family on the trip today. The two children were very entertaining and focused for their ages and so I was duly impressed.
So what did we see?
Sea eagles on Loch na keal islands. A lot of Slavonian Grebes and a cloud of Barnacle Geese lifting off Inch Kenneth , possibly in that very moment heading north and home for the summer.
Lots of great northern divers scattered around Mull. We also had a male hen harrier in Glenmore but the prize today after waiting a while, was the golden eagles that I know so well, as one cruised along the cliff face breaking the skyline occasionally. I think these birds are going to give me and my guests a lot of pleasure this year.
Plenty of red deer also today and nice food !!
