Lochdon, Mull

Well here we are on Mull, since we stopped last year the cottage has had Wifi installed, so a quick post is called for.

We arrived at about 4.30 yesterday afternoon after a great scenic drive over Glencoe from Edinburgh.

On the loch in front of the house aMale Goosander drifted quietly by so a great start and we hadn't even unpacked the car! After unpacking we sat with a well earned cuppa looking out over the loch as the tide came in, the result:

Goosander, Shelduck, Curlew, Common Sandpiper, Starling, House Sparrow, Grey Heron, Mute Swan, Oystercatcher, Lesser Black Backed Gull, Herring Gull, Common Gull, Chaffinch, Robin, Hooded Crow, Blackbird, Great Tit.

Some divers that in the fading light were to far away to identify, a raptor flew through but the sighting was fleeting an possibly a Twite. So a good start.

Sorry no pics as I can't get them to my iPad.
