Another stunning day on Mull.

Greenshank and Common Sandpiper
Another good day on Mull, wish the temperature outside of the car was as hot as inside the car was showing even though it was a very pleasant day out of the slight breeze.
Watched Sea Eagle and Golden Eagles soaring high in the sky today.  Lots of Slavs around too, more than we have seen before at this time of the year.  There seemed to be lots of Swallows around from the word go today even at the cottage and we got our first Common Sandpiper today together with a Greenshank which is always good to see.  Red Throated Divers also today along with lots more Great Northern but none to match the bird we saw yesterday.
Crossbills high in the confiers feeding on the cones and Twite again with lots of Willow Warbler which seemed to turn up over night. Tree Pipit also seen and heard at Loch Ba together with Redpoll and Siskin.
Finished the day off with two Short Eared Owl and a female Hen Harrier but too distant for any decent photos.
Temperature inside the car.
Loch Scridain
Slavonian Grebe
White Tailed Sea Eagle
Common Lizard
