The day that the remains of the hurricane blew through things could have been difficult but it turned out to be a cracker. We started the day with a few Barnacle Geese, Wigeon, Snipe, a male Hen Harrier and Mountain Hare.
We had to work hard to find things but all the goods were found through the day. A pair of WT Eagle were seen on the skerries, 4 Otters soon after, one BT Diver, a raft of Eider, plenty of Buzzard...
...and six GN Diver.
A single Dipper was seen doing his thing.
A good smattering of waders included Turnstone, Dunlin, Greenshank and plenty of Grey Heron.
Sighting of the day had to be at our last stop where we found two Golden Eagle hunting the ridge and drifting in and out of the clouds - very atmospheric!
