|Great White Egret|
Over the moon we head to the north west of the island (passing 4 Mealy Redpoll). Approaching the hills a Golden Eagle flew overhead and another distantly from the watch point, while a female Hen Harrier quartered below us.
With the weather now turning nasty it was back to Balranald to hunt for the Glaucous Gull, which we found by the dead whale on the beach.
|Sadly now a Glauc feast|
|Great Northern Diver|
From the ferry a very distant White-tailed Eagle was being hounded by Hooded Crows. While tucking into a chicken curry, the sea view gave loads of auks, a Common Dolphin, 3 Porpoise and amazingly an Otter about 2 miles from land.
Driving over Skye we had an adult White-tailed Eagle mobbed by a Buzzard. Not the best photos as we barely slowed down.
Stunning scenery as dusk fell and then a most wanted tick in the form of a Pine Marten by the road about 30 miles north of Stirling. Superb!! Four Barn Owl between the Scottish border and home finished the trip off. With great thanks to Chris for driving, this was a fantastic trip.
