At last

This tour proved to be a bit difficult but we got there in the end. The adult WT Eagle was on the nest but mostly obscured by a branch. We rectified that later in the day by seeing two birds sitting on the top of a ridge. We managed to see a couple of Golden Eagle after visiting a few sites. There was plenty of common birds to see but there was an 'at last' moment for all the big stuff. We found an Otter but it managed to get into the holt without anyone seeing it but me - the best anyone else got were the ripples where it had dived! All that changed when we came across a mother and cub.
They both fished just offshore from where we quietly standing.
The mother caught a fish that she didn't want to deal with in the water and that was the last we saw of them - fantastic!
