Mull

We had a week in Mull a couple of weeks - ago guided, in weather that hadn’t heard of Spring, but saw quite a bit  - cuckoos, owls (both ear-lengths) & a “pay & display” boat trip for white-tailed eagle.

The boat trip was very worthwhile. Lots of visits, but could have been much better had there been more thought put into it for photographers. The fish could have been chucked downwind to have the bird coming towards us & with a better background. Martin is an affable guy, but a Yorkshireman!

Otters running                 

We spent quite a bit of time looking for otters, but saw only bobbing heads. We learnt some fieldcraft & immediately after the guiding  ended had time to go out in our car on our own.

MUCH more satisfying to find the beasts ourselves, tracking them from the road for half an hour before stalking them on foot when they came out of the water in evening sunshine.
