Our latest Mull Visit.

The weather this visit, last week, was not as good as it should have been.  So much so we struggled to see any butterflies at all.  Only one small tortoiseshell, one small heath, one speckled wood and a couple of meadow brown, no scotch argus.

Black Guillemots near the Corran Ferry en route.
One of many Herons.
 Family of three otters.
One of a large group of Twite.
 Love Hooded Crows.
 Quite a lot of Spotted Flycatchers around.
Not so many Buzzards.
 Unexpected view as we sat looking over the Sound of Mull.
Flying around the nest site.
 Local Killechronan landing on the shingle.
 On the road to Iona from the car.
Being chased by a Buzzard.
Now some of the many birds feeding at the edge of the garden most days.

 One of 6 Song Thrush all together in the garden one morning.
