Friday was a scorcher with the temperatures in the twenties by 10am. I was en route to pick up the last of the guests for the day when we saw three Otters in the loch. Not an ideal situation but you can't drive past these things. We picked up the rest of the guests and had a look at the WT Eagle feeding the youngsters. It wasn't too long after we were viewing another Otter so that got everyone on an even keel. Common Sandpipers were all over the place and cracking views of the GN Divers as we went along. We got both of the Golden Eagles in flight and the eaglet on the nest. It's hard to imagine the little ball of fluff growing into a magnificent adult.
...as the rest of the group continued feeding.
The Linnets that we saw were looking their best in smart summer dress and the Mountain Hares raced around in the sedge showing us a clean pair of heels.
We managed a good look at one of the Lapwing chicks...
...as the mist started to roll in off the sea.
It was a bit like the curtain coming down at the end of a show - classic stuff!!! Happy Birthday, Michael.
The sunset was a bit tasty too before the rain came in overnight.
