Bird photography tour of Mull – special year for Otters

29/05/2014

The bird photography tour of Mull 2014 will live long in the memory. Not only did we have a great group of clients to guide we also had some special wildlife encounters. Top of the list this year were Otters. The tone was set on the first morning when we enjoyed watching a family of three Otters playing in the kelp. Not only were we treated to this intimate interaction but we were close enough to get some nice images and hear the Otters calling to each other. As time progressed we probably totalled nearly 6 hours spent in the company of Otters often at ‘too close to focus’ range.

Of course we had the White Tailed Eagles too and a supporting cast including a pair of Cuckoo, Puffins, Great Northern Diver, Stonechat and Whinchat. We saw one Short Eared Owl but that was the only target we struggled to get decent pictures of… but you always need a reason to come back.

Thanks to Steve, Betty, Karen and Stewart (and the wildlife!) for your wonderful company.
