A bit of a plug to start with. Anyone who didn't catch up with Hebrides: Islands on the Edge get yourself settled in front of the TV on Thursday, BBC2 9pm - just awesome.
We started this tour with a good sighting of an Otter within 15 minutes of setting off. When the Otter moved out of sight we had to move on as I could hear Otter calls nearby - better to move and try again later rather than disturb them. An Oystercatcher was first in the frame of the camera as it stretched below the surface for an open mussel.
