spread your tiny wings

. . . still blogging back in time with our Mull adventures . . .

Monday 29 April

up bright and early for our wildlife tour with Bryan and another amazing Wild About Mull Tour (which you can read about on Bryan's Blog and see much better pics than mine)
It was very windy but also sunny and the light was brilliant for photos
 some serious spotting going on here on the beach (why are we all wearing navy blue!) . .
and mysterious prints
then high in the hills
and an intense adder watch
 followed by some great beasties posing against that amazing backdrop
 taking turns to play I-spy
and altogether we spotted:

Black tailed godwit - Blackbird - Buzzard - Chaffinch - Curlew - Dunlin - Eider duck - Golden eagle - Golden plover - Gooseander - Great northern diver - Hen harrier, female -  Hen harrier, male - Heron - Herring gull - Highland cattle - Hooded crow - Lapwing - Linnet - Meadow Pippit - Otter - Oyster catcher - Pied wagtail - Red deer - Redshank - Robin - Rock Pippit - Red breasted marganzer - Raven - Sandpiper - Seal - Shag - Sheldrake - Siskin - Starling - Stonechat - Turnstone - Wheatear - White-tailed eagle - White wagtail - Willow warbler - Wimbrel

So it was back to Ardfin and Ardlea for a curry night, courtesy of our very own Mike followed by - you guessed it - a round or two or three of QI

and the song that springs to mind after our spottings today is of course dear old Macca singing Blackbird
or another Beatles classic - Your Bird Can Sing

now you can either move on and see what we did on Tuesday - by clicking here
