Another classic view of WT Eagle to start the day.
There appear to be less adult GN Diver now while the juvenile birds still remain. An adult that was close to shore had caught a crab...
...broke off the legs...
...and then swallowed the body - great to watch.
Through the day we had sightings of Cuckoo, Whinchat, Golden Eagle briefly and a Snipe on a pole. It was quite windy while we looked for Mountain Hares but we found a few sheltering among the rocks.
While looking for the hares we almost trod on a couple of Dunlin!
A surprise find was a very obliging Whooper Swan - this bird actually swam towards us like it was looking to be fed.
We finally found an Otter at our last stop just after we had a young WT Eagle fly overhead.
