Wild Times on Mull

Spent a week on the Isle of Mull, looking for wildlife and generally chillin out. We were mainly looking for and saw White Tailed Eagles, but our photo of the holiday came from a walk around the Treshnish Peninsula. At an area known locally for it's links with smuggling and illicit Whiskey moonshine, I spotted a pair of Otters just offshore. A closer inspection revealed three Otters, presumably a mother and two cubs, fishing, playing and later play-fighting. We watched them for about twenty minutes and I couldn't believe our luck as the sun came out and I managed to get some reasonable shots.

During an earlier drive out, we came across this soaked Buzzard, trying to dry off on a telegraph pole. Buzzards are usually quite flighty birds, but this one seemed too wet to care. We had a great time on Mull. Given the opportunity, I would happily move over there. Can't wait to get back.
