Mid-morning a movement caught my eye and an eagle was soaring above. I even managed to get the camera, find the eagle in the viewfinder and then- too late, it was gone before I managed to take the photo.
Next project for the day was to take some more photos of bridges I've seen in the past but not stopped for. Then I realised why I'd not stopped, there was nowhere to stop without blocking a passing place on the single track roads.
... and then I saw the sparrows singing on the roof of a building. The photos are in focus but the light is not good so, despite the detail, they are no use for adding to the blog.
the sparrows had been making an awful row and kept landing on the logs to see if I'd put out any seed for them so, like the mug I am, I did so.
When the bird traffic calmed down a little this finch took the opportunity to drop by and take some seed. As you can see from the photograph it never dropped its guard, always on the alert for the return of the sparrows.
in previous years this fog horn would have been alerting shipping to Ardnamurchan point's presence. Nowadays with electronic gadgets on even the smaller ships is has become rather redundant although the light is still used.
I started to upload the photographs from Ardnamurchan but when the skies started to light up and the thunder started to roll overhead everything got switched off and unplugged. I've done some of the sorting out now but the storm appears to be returning so I think I forget doing anymore today.
