Glengorm Sunset - 12th October 2013

Fantastic weather on Mull in the last couple of days. Here is yesterdays sunset from Glengorm.

Wildlife Adventure - 11th October 2013

Glorious sunshine throughout the trip today as we encountered some small groups of Harbour Porpoise as we sailed through the Sound of Mull. Another highlight was viewing a pair of Golden Eagles and a pair of White-tailed Eagles together in their neighbouring territories. Guillemots and Kittiwakes in good numbers out in the open grounds as we enjoyed fantastic views of the highlands and islands in pristine light. Our local Harbour Seal colony were showing well in healthy numbers and another good plankton trawl was taken. A wonderful four hours at sea.

White-tailed Eagle - 10th October 2013

An adult White-tailed Eagle seen on today's Ecocruz.

Wildlife Adventure - 9th October 2013

Strong winds made for challenging conditions today as we covered waters in the Sound of Mull. Gannets and Kittiwakes seen tackling the strong winds with ease and a good number of Common Seals at their local haul out site. A great plankton sample was displayed on the microscope for all to see. The changeable weather produced some fantastic rainbows and shades of light on the hills of Mull and Movern.
