We had a great morning on Staffa, near Mull this morning. A grey start that threatened rain turned into glorious sunshine. Lots of wild flowers around and a few puffins coming and going from their burrows, but obviously a lot incubating and so not spending time just hanging about the cliffs.
We are now heading across to Iona for the afternoon there, so will hopefully catch up with some corncrakes. Heard one this morning on Staffa, and the snipe were drumming also. A few twite around the place and of course skylarks singing, with meadow and rock pipits being everywhere.
