We have had all of Mother Natures elements thrown at us this last week but thankfully sunshine has been the dominant one, though usually with a very cold wind.
Today starts with another luxuriant look from here, with snow topped peaks and the landscape below and sea bathed in sun and thankfully lighter winds today.
None of the above has reduced our sightings though, with Iceland gull, male and female harriers passing prey to each other, or not, short eared owls, various otters with múm an two cubs on a small islet yesterday at Garmony. Sea eagles, thousands of wheatears, meadow pipits and skylarks, great northern divers and slavonian grebes, whinchats and stonechats and of course all the more regular birds, plus seals and red deer. Golden eagles have been really hard to find this week as they do not like these very cold winds, but with every day getting longer and sunnier activity will increase.
Off now on another trip and hopefully another keen group !!
