While picking up the guests we found an Otter so I dropped off the guests I had and went to pick up the others. Luckily, on my return the Otter was still around and we managed to get decent views.
We struggled to get views of a feeding RT Diver from the same spot but that's the way it goes sometimes. Stunning views of both the adult WT Eagles were had. Initially there was just one bird in the trees...
...but the other bird flew in and landed a bit closer - awesome!
A pair of RT Diver were seen not long after that. They were close to shore to start with but a boat was lifting lobster pots in the same place so they eventually flew off.
Another Otter was seen on the shore cleaning itself - lovely to watch.
A male Hen Harrier was seen as we drove along and the usual selection of waders were seen - Golden Plover, Ringed Plover, Dunlin and Curlew. It was a long wait for Golden Eagle but the 3 Adders that we saw kept us amused.
A couple of Whinchat were seen while we waited for the big birds. Once we picked up one Golden Eagle in the distance it wasn't too long before we had another three in our sights. Another WT Eagle was seen sitting on the rocks in a bay and another bird was seen flying over the road in a different location.
A good showing from the Mountain Hares with five of them picked up, the Skylarks were as close as ever and a Dunlin was seen close by.
