I had a bit of a busmans holiday last week and went wildlife watching elsewhere in Scotalnd. Started of with a trip on Sea Leopard to Corryvreckan which brought sightings of wild goats on scarba, seals, gannets and numerous other sea birds plus a sea eagle on the north end of Jura.

On sunday I stopped off at the Loch of the Lowes where the osprey are very active and got my first sighting (and very poor photo) of an osprey fishing. A pair of great crested grebes were also feeding close to the hides. After a pleasant evening in Dalwhinne, I spent Monday watching and photogrpahing two pairs of osprey, one on Loch Insh, the other in Glen Feshie.
Back home and Tuesday brought my first sighting of Black throated diver on Loch Garry. No doubt they have been there for a while but not whilst I was watching. Still no sign of Scoter though.Yesterday Brought my first cuckoo of the year, in the Glen Luie area of Glen Garry forest. I also spotted a wood warbler on the walk. So over all a very active spell of wildlfe watching.
