Staffa in Sunshine

So have been a little remiss in posting stuff to my blog lately so aiming to do a little better over the coming weeks.  The first couple of trips were good, and managed a few nice images, which I will post the best of into my Eco-Vista facebook page over the next 24 hours.

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.
