Out with Arthur

Wednesday May 8

After one of Kathy's splendid breakfasts, Arthur (Discover Wildlife Mull)  picked us up at 9.30 before driving to Tobermory to collect the remaining 6 passengers. They were all very pleasant companions.
The day started dry and ended normally - wet. 
We saw three different White-tailed Eagles, one on the beach, the other flying in to a nest.

One Golden Eagle
Two different Otters
A herd of Highland Cattle wandering up the road, accompanied by a Simmenthal bull. 

The farmers are trying out different bull breed/ Highland crosses for commercial reasons. We saw a Charolais bull in another herd.

We added a Sparrowhawk at Aros and , ending up at Arthur and Pam's home for tea, a splendid selection of birds on their feeders, including 4 Lesser Redpolls. Great.
Instead of getting off at Dervaig, we went on to Tobermory and had an interesting tour of the upper areas. We'd never been up there before. Arthur dropped us off at Kathy'son the way home.
A lovely day as always.
