Scotland day five – Calgary Bay

With a big day planned for Sunday, we opted for a more relaxed day on Saturday with a trip to Calgary Bay.

It was about the worst weather we’ve had with light drizzly rain for the morning. Still we managed a walk along the bay, spotting Linnet and wheatear alongside the omnipresent Oystercatcher, Rock Pipit, and Sandpiper. Plus obligatory distant sound of cuckoo.

A walk around a forest sculpture trail gave us plenty more birds, including a Spotted Flycatcher.

Back in Tobermory, Dad drove himself insane trying to get the perfect Oystercatcher photo, while I watched a dipper that had made home in the distillery water supply!

Tomorrow we’re going eagle spotting, and then I’ll be heading on my island tour.
