Merlins and Whale

Yes, it was a Merlin day and we saw four! One on the way west in the bright sunshine over Kilchiran way as well as a Kestrel too. Then later we went with the Homeschool to look at the second Curviers Beaked Whale at Machir. This was a female and had been quite battered around.

It was good for the youngsters to see such a beast in the raw. It was such good weather we picnic-ed with Choughs over head and a hen Merlin stormed right past us creating Stonechat havoc! On our way to run the young Adventurers Wildwood Wisdom programme we had another two along Gorm North end.
