Wednesday was another wet one but Thursday was an absolute stunner - check that view!!
Time flies when you are enjoying yourself so I had a quick stop for lunch before going in search of some Golden Eagles. A scan round with the binoculars gave me nothing but a scan round with the scope picked up a cloud of corvids rising from a distant hillside as a juvenile White-tailed Eagle flew over the top of them. As this bird was disappearing another bird cleared the ridge but this time it was a juvenile Golden Eagle. It's all good stuff but a bit distant and as far as photographs go, the moon was closer!!
I did get some stunning views of the Golden Eagles after about an hour as they cruised the ridge, the light catching the under wing as they banked over and then they were off. A trip to Tobermory in the dark was quite productive with a few Woodcock seen and cracking views of a Barn Owl too.
