20th August: Merlin

On the Eagle Walk on Wednesday, as well as golden eagle sightings, we got a couple of brilliant sightings of Merlin out in Glen Vigidale. The UK’s smallest bird of prey, the Merlin nest in deep heather, usually in sheltered gulleys – so plenty of good habitat for them here on North Harris.
