Elated, we went to buy post cards and to tell the other birders.
We also had a singing Chiffchaff, Rook and Guillemot to add to our list. After a cuppa, we caught the mid-day ferry, seeing a Great Skua, Gannets and Common Terns from the shelter of the cabin.
The afternoon was spent touring Fidden, Uisken - where we ate lunch - and then the climb to Loch Assopol. Not good visibility to-day, thick mist and heavy overcast.During the next 2 hours, we saw little, apart from the beautiful and ubiquitous Wheatears.
I did the Telegraph crossword and Pam read the Mull Bird Report. Just as we were stirring to leave, a Kestrel flew by, followed by a male Hen Harrier and a White-tailed Eagle showed briefly along the ridge. Bumping our way down the very rough track, a Peregrine swooped through chasing a Meadow Pipit. Exciting 15 minutes.
