The final tour before a trip to Newcastle was a real raptor showcase. We started the day with all the gulls going up in a panic as a Peregrine came charging through. We got decent views of an Otter that was moving away from us and couldn't relocate it when we moved to a closer position. A couple of RT Diver were on the loch in the same location. There was no sign of the juv WT Eagle but Sparrowhawk, Whinchat, Stonechat and Hen Harrier filled the gap nicely.

I had a couple of days off so I just managed a quick visit round to see the WT Eagles. Sunbathing was the order of the day...

A quick look through the gulls that were plundering the sprats revealed nothing more exciting than this Black-headed Gull.
