A wildlife-rich drive to Tarbert from Amhuinnsuidhe yesterday morning: a juvenile sea eagle flying very low over the road at Cliasmol being mobbed by a pair of gulls; a red deer stag at Tolmachan; and two buzzards, at Buna and Ardhasaig! A buzzard is quite regularly seen perched on top of the chimney of the old Whaling Station at Buna.

7th November: Sea Eagles and Snow Buntings
Three juvenile Sea Eagles seen from the road, flying about around Aird an Tolmachan this-morning. We’ve also had a few reports over the last couple of weeks of Snow Buntings being spotted – These distinctive little birds come down from the arctic circle to overwinter in the UK.
14th May – Eagles aplenty!
A very successful Eagle Walk at Bogha Glas today – with an abundance of sightings of Golden Eagles and Sea Eagles. We were seeing so many on the way up the glen that if we’d stopped to look at them all, we’d never have finished the walk!
25th March: White Tailed Eagle
A White Tailed (Sea) Eagle was spotted last night from the main road by Loch Seaforth.
9th September: Six Sea Eagles!
On Monday a group of six White Tailed (Sea) Eagles were seen around the crags above Loch na Cleabhaig, out between Hushinish and Cravadale. There were a pair of adults (identifiable by the distinctive white tail feathers), and the others were juveniles.
White Tailed Eagles are far more sociable than Golden Eagles, and so will group together much more readily, but this was still a pretty special sight!
