Wednesdays trip

I had a full vehicle on Wednesday and more good sightings. Most of us saw the otter at Craignure who was behaving like a highland cow i.e. looking as if he was planted by The Scottish Tourist Board !

Off to Grasspoint and we had no sooner crossed the lovely ancient bridge there when a male hen harrier came gliding across the road and we all got out and had good views. I like Grasspoint which is always full of potential but I can’t say that we saw much except gannets offshore, razorbills and great northern diver. Stonechat on the way and more of them later. The Croggan golden eagles were up but distant as was a hen harrier. Into eagle country and Glenmore where we saw all three territories of golden eagles which are always exciting to me personally as they sweep off the skyline and soar above. Red deer of course today both stags with antlers and females with last years young. More great northern divers and super view of a sitting white tailed sea eagle. Rock doves again, ravens always, red breasted mergansers, eiders and happy customers again.
