A bit of a mad dash at the start of the day for this tour as my first sighting was an Otter! I picked up the guests and headed back to where I had seen the Otter half an hour earlier - luckily it was still visible but it did the great disappearing trick and we had a bonus Crossbill at the top of a conifer. We moved on and found another, more obliging, Otter.
The WT Eagle chick is not too far from fledging and the adults are keeping a watch over the youngsters antics.
There are quite a few Red Deer calves this year but the hinds keep their distance - it's a different story for last years calves as we found with this fine looking specimen.
As usual the Adder was seen but a better find, by one of the guests, was this male Hen Harrier.
There are some waders pushing through now so we got three Dunlin on the beach and the Skylarks are showing well along the grassy edges.
We had a wander around to find a Mountain Hare but it was too quick for the camera but this Grey Heron wasn't!
