It’s finally time to make our annual trip up to the Isle of Mull, and I absolutely can’t wait. My parents have arrived to stay in our house for the duration (a nice free holiday for them), and all that’s left is for us to do some packing and start the 531 mile car journey north. In no time at all we will be back in the land of Eagles and legends with the stresses of work and daily life left far behind. My main aim is to simply enjoy myself, but I would love to see some Basking Sharks up close and have high hopes of spotting a Minke Whale. This latter relies on the individual that has been sighted from the boat trip we plan to take sticking around in the area for the next few days. I am also very intrigued to see if our Golden Eagle pair has nested in the same location for a third year running, and if the Short Eared Owl nest by the house has been successful.
We have no internet access at the house so I will be relying on free wi-fi connections in Tobermory to update this blog, and even that isn’t guaranteed. So if you don’t hear from me for the next couple of weeks then never fear, there will be an absolute deluge coming once I am back.
