Mull 2015

A visit to Mull in the spring is a special time. The migrants return to the island and the breeding cycle starts again. Timings were a little later than usual due to the poor weather but the end of May worked out well. the weather was not great but you quickly learn to make the best of any good weather. Being able to photograph from 4.30am to 10.30pm does allow you more time in the field
Highlights of the trip included regular sightings of hen harrier, golden eagles and short eared owls, 3 of my favourite birds. 2 trips with Mull Charters for the White Tailed Eagles and an amenable corncrake on Iona. My wife even managed a full body shot of the corncrake.
I have visited tMull for several years and it never fails to provide new photographic opportunities. I always return invigorated and inspired
