Don’t just take our word for it

Lochbuie Mull

Wall-to-wall sunshine on the beautiful Isle of Mull

Coming back to North Wales which had suffered more snow last week, friends couldn’t believe that we’d had wall-to-wall sunshine on the Isle of Mull. Hopefully our photos show just how beautiful the island looked, though you’ll notice we’re well wrapped up!

Well wrapped-up but happy, our group had just been watching a Golden Eagle

We had a superb Birdwatching Trip to Mull with incredible encounters with White-tailed Eagles, Golden Eagles, Hen Harriers, Red-necked Grebe, Slavonian Grebe, Black-throated Diver, Great Northern Divers aplenty, Red-throated Divers, Whooper Swans, Glaucous Gulls, Iceland Gull, Black Guillemots, Whimbrel, true Rock Doves, Hooded Crows, Common Crossbills and many more. We also enjoyed superb views of otters on several occasions, as well as red and fallow deer and one bottlenose dolphin.

But don’t just take our word for how good the trip was, here are some comments from our lovely guests, and their photos from the trip too:

“Just a note to say a big thanks for the week and looking after me. This week has made a big difference to me. The birds, the hotel, the group but mainly you two, thanks for giving me the time and being patient with me, I do appreciate it. Thanks again.”

“Once again, thank you for a lovely birdwatching holiday, we’ve both had a wonderful time with great company.”

“Thanks again for a great time in Mull - our new favourite place”

"Thanks for another great trip and the bird list and Hen Harriers photo. I know Alan and the team will do well in Israel. I will be following them on F/B and Twitter. Save me a seat on the Champions Bus when they return with the trophy."
