May 7
A domestic scene. I'm at my laptop, Pam's reading and Megan the labrador is stretched out asleep on the floor. She's not really allowed in but we let her ! After investigating the wastepaper basket for anything edible, having a cuddle and a fuss made, she settles.
We booked a late breakfast this morning due to a dire weather forecast. It ended as a dry with sun morning and a constant rain afternoon! We didn't travel much, Fidden, Uisken, Scoor Estate, Kintra and home by 4.00 p.m.
We added Little Grebe for Mull and a Snipe for the trip at Scour, which is usually a great raptor watching site for us. Everything hunkered down to-day. No sign of the Lesser Whitethroat at Uisken either.
I managed one photograph of a wet Buzzard in the rain at Bunessan and several of a female Wheatear on the Kintra Road.

Not having much success booking boat trips either. To-morrow pm is too rough for Staffa and the Sea Eagle boat trip from Ulva Ferry is full on both Wednesday and Thursday. We're booked to go out with Arthur on Friday, shame as I'd have preferred the boat trip. They have accustomed a pair of  White-tailed Eagles to come down for the fish they throw, which would have been an excellent photographic opportunity.
Time for supper and to usher Megan out.
Scottish Greylag Geese look different. Slimmer and less bold looking, altogether a less coarse looking bird. I quite like them !
And they're found on the beach too......
