“It’s been a really good week for us,our guests and our wildlife. The weather was a bit mixed early on but it has really come good just in time for the Easter weekend. Argyll looking at its springtime best.
This week we have seen a good number of porpoise feeding in the tide round the Corryvreckan and also we have seen our two pairs of Sea Eagles around their territories. On Friday we saw a Sea Eagle being mobbed by a pair of buzzards, this is quite normal activity and generally happens if the Sea Eagle is too close for comfort to the buzzards nest. The Sea Eagle was just sitting on a rock and ducking every time the buzzards dive bombed. Eventually he got the message and flew off.
Other sightings this week were otters, seals and gannets, the Corryvreckan has been spectacular as well in the big tides with some huge whirlpools set up on the ebb tide.
We also had the BBC on board for a couple of days filming for Landward around the Corryvreckan, we will let you know when it will be screened.
