There are a few iconic species you hope for when heading to Mull and we were fortunate to see them all. The Otter showed on our last day and the Hen Harriers gave great scope views but were always a little far for photography. Both species of Eagles didn’t disappoint and Red Deer were numerous but better at dawn and late evening.
As we left the Island on the Saturday social distancing was coming into play in the local Spar shop. We had been lucky in getting the week in, but I think the whole country would have been better prepared for the outbreak of Covid-19 if we had gone to lockdown earlier. A sad way to leave the Island and I hope, so much, that this madness we find ourselves in does not decimate the tourist industry up here, and that it recovers and continues to flourish. We’ll be back for sure!
