Scotland 2015. Day 21 Mull Eagle Watch.

A brisk start today as we had booked in to the Mull Eagle Watch above Loch Scridain.  It was a much more optimistic start weatherwise, although showery.  We were away at 8.30 and the single track journey went quickly, punctuated by good views of the short eared owls on the way.  We were greeted by the RSPB warden in charge of the eagle watch and had an excellent 3 hours with talks by both the warden and a forestry commission lady which were both interesting and informative.  We had good views of both adult sea eagles, although too distant for photography.   I also enjoyed photographing the siskins at the adjacent feeding station.
Eventually it was time to move on and we continued down to Loch Na Keal and gradually made our way back to camp for 4.00 pm.  After a quick cup of tea it was time to walk along our beautiful stretch of coastline looking, yet again in vain, for otters.  The views and colours were superb: huge billowing cumulus clouds, turquoise and inky blue sea and bright orange/brown seaweed.

A brilliant day again.
