Along the Shoreline
It has lain there for many years and its wood is now rotten, but it isn't useless. Look carefully towards the bow of the boat in the upper picture, and there's a hole in the grass leading under the boat. We've seen an otter going in there.
The twittering of small birds warned me that it was coming, giving plenty of time to get the camera out. But the eagle had seen me and, instead of passing directly overhead, veered away inland.
SFP ships never seem to be in a hurry to get anywhere. The Jura arrived very slowly, headed for the mouth of Loch Sunart, turned and did a wide circle in the Sound, stopped, and then, about three hours later, wandered off southwards. With the recent designation of some 30 Marine Protection Areas, one would have thought these ships would be scurrying round looking after them.
