Sat 27th Dec

On our way over to Gruinart at midday today, we had a really good view of a Merlin, armed with the camera I was determined to get an image of it. But it thought differently, when you followed it along the road and about 20 metres away, van stopped, window down, camera out, almost done, the bird had flown on along to another perch. The joys of photography....
On returning home later on, we took a walk out onto the crag and up to the "sword makers" house, and dropped down onto the Machir bay below the 3 gates, returning home by the Coastguard cottages. It was a grand walk and with the light being good in the late afternoon, we could see over to Donegal and up to Mull. Just before we got home there was a flock of Chough returning to the roost, just as the light was starting to fade.
