Another day of being flexible to try to get the best of the wildlife. We started the day with good views of Redshank, Lapwing and a female Hen Harrier. We then headed for a Golden Eagle site which paid off fairly quickly with two birds circling in the distance. After a short wait the birds started to head towards us and gave us an awesome display as the first bird sailed overhead...

Another trip to Iona, with guests, for Corncrake. The trip over was uneventful with Kittiwake...

A bit windy and a trickle of rain all day didn't make for the best of conditions. The Begbie family were up for it with the main target for the day being WT Eagle but everything else would do too! We started the day with an Otter sleeping on the shore...

Better weather for this tour so there were a few more photos. Some close Mountain Hares were nice to see at our first stop.

There was no sign of any adult WT Eagle at the nest as we started the tour so we decided to call back later in the day when the weather had improved. Four Otters on the shore were a better sighting.

A day of requests on a hot, sunny day turned out quite well. The guests for the day had an idea that they might like to see Corncrake so we decided to give it a bash. We started the day with an Otter, Golden Eagle and Adder were added soon after and the first of the requests was filled in when we got good views of a pair of Whinchat.

A day off kept me away from the camera but not before pointing it at a male Hen Harrier!

The sightings are staying fairly similar at the moment so I'll just rattle through the photos. A couple of moulting RB Merganser were having a kip at high tide.
