Uist's Trip 19th may

A short blog this one as most of day spent travelling from Uist's to the Highlands. Early morning I spent a pleasant couple of hours at Locheynort North. Reasonable views of 3 Golden and 2 White-tailed Eagle. Also a pair of Raven. A pair of Red-throated Diver on the Loch and Chaffinch, Greenfinch and Goldfinch in the small wood. I arrived at Lochmaddy for the ferry in good time and a distant White-tailed eagle kept me entertained as it disappeared in and out of the cloud. The crossing was much quieter bird wise than coming over but still managed; Black Guillemot, Guillemot, Razorbill, Gannet, Fulmar, Arctic Tern, Bonxie, Arctic Skua, Puffin, Great-northern Diver, Kittiwake, Manx Shearwater. Then a long drive over to Netheybridge, running late so no time for birding.
