At the head of loch Cuin on low water we had 4 Greenshanks and 4 Snipe along with a solitary Redshank.
We made our way south on the upland pass to Torloisk and Stuart spotted something stationary on the skyline and as we got the optics onto it, it was an adult Golden Eagle showing very well! We pulled over and scoped the bird, enjoying beautiful views, lit up in the Hebridean sunshine. It took to the wing and came even closer before travelling NW with urgency.

Another sight of interest was Red-breasted Mergansers performing courtship behavior in their classic elegant manner, very beautiful.
We saw some Ravens performing intersting interactions but the birds dispersed elsewhere as the light dropped...we will be back!
We worked our way round to Loch Na Keal where we had a flock of Fieldfare , Kestrels, Grey Seals and the wonderful sight of a 37 bird Great-northern Diver roost at dusk!
Thanks for looking.
