Recent visit to Mull 24th July.

July is not the best time of year to visit Mull but can still find all you want to see but may have to try a little harder.
We always manage to find something of interest down by the bay at the airstrip.  This visit was the daily sightings of a Short Eared Owl.  Whilst scanning the bay one morning we found about 12 Dunlin with what we can only assume was some type of Phalarope but the weather was not good and too distant to know exactly what. 
Not our best pictures but just enjoyed mooching around this holiday.
Great day around by Gribun Rocks watching an otter in the sea, Golden Eagles, WTSE, Peregrines and Ravens.  Then a flock of Twite down by the farm and views of the islands to die for.
 Scarisdale Rocks, always otters.

 Watch out for WTSE along Duart Road

 So many Hen Harriers and an Osprey whilst watching moors out of Loch Don.


It would be interesting to know how long this Pink Foot had been along the shore of Loch Na Keal.

Scotch Argus just starting to appear.
