The weather was quite good, a lovely evening but at this stage we didn't know how good it was going to get. I couldn't believe it when not far out of Tobermory we encountered this little beauty.
|The first of our Short-eared Owls.|
|We just sat in the car and watched as 4 of them flew around hunting.|
|Black Guillemot . This is a bird I thought I would have to get at St. Bees, so a journey saved there.|
|And when we arrived back at Deerside this little chap was waiting for us,||A Whitethroat sitting high up on a telephone wire, I don't think I have ever seen one so far out in the open. It was also a good distance away so this is digiscoped.|
|White-tailed Eagle, it was a good height up but sill looked like a huge flying plank, things became more spectacular as it drifted away when a Buzzard came in to mob it, but by now it was too far away for pics.|
All for now, but more to come.
