A better day for sightings on a day with no photographer but we did miss out on Mountain Hare. The first decent sighting of the day was a summer plumaged RT Diver.

Another trip out with a photographer was more about finding out the best sites for certain species than getting the actual sightings. We did get plenty of sightings on the day though. A Mountain Hare was in a difficult position to get close to it and eventually it wandered off.

An impromptu tour made up for a bit of a different day. The target was to find an Otter to photograph and then any species of fauna in front of the camera. We started off with a nice Common Seal...

There was quite a bit of fog around when I went to pick up the guests so we headed out of the fog and back into the sunshine. No problem in finding a WT Eagle as one sailed around in a clear blue sky.
The next day the weather was better and there were plenty of sightings to be had. An Otter was seen briefly but too distant for photos. Stonechat...

The weather has been fantastic for anyone on their holidays but it's way too hot for the wildlife - everything just wants to get into the shade and stay cool! The views are just superb though.
The mornings have seen the most sightings before it gets too hot. I must remember to have my camera to hand for the WT Eagle as we have had some superb views. The Curlew are still looking after their chicks but you don't see the youngsters that much.

A couple of tours in this post with some of the birds just not quite in range. The Golden Eagle we saw just never came close enough for a decent shot...
