At 6.00am this morning i heard the sound of raindrops falling on the roof.
Ahhh no i thought not a horrible miserable rainy day, thats not what Met check said, my trusted weather provider.
Well by 8.00am the cloudbase was high and the rain well a past memory.
A busy day tour ahead a full bus x8 guests all wanting their taste of Mull Wildlife.
So what did they want Eagles and Eagles seemed to be the main theme so Eagles it was!.
Our first stop was very lucky i must admit. As we scanned the shoreline i was busy telling our guests all about the Sea -Eagle program when all suddenly every bird in the district took to the air.
A flock of Greylags had also taken to the air around 60-70 and the noise was just electric, well amazing.
We scanned and picked up the problems WTSE hunting the shore and heading back to the safety of the conifers.
Is that a pet Eagle you have trained to do this a guest commented!.
A perfect example of luck combined with right place and right time i added.
Nice sightings of the usual Oystercatchers and a couple of nice Curlew, Common Gull and the frantic views of flying Geese.
