Sea Eagle over Camas nan Geall

Camas nan Geall is beautiful at any time but spectacularly so at six in the morning on a fine, if chill morning like this morning, with the sun just catching the tops of the mountains while the bay lay in shadow.

We were there looking for sea eagles and one duly appeared, flying in from the direction of Ben Hiant and circling the bay area before being harassed by a buzzard, after which the eagle....

....landed on a crag on the upper slopes of Torr na Moine - it's just visible at centre in this picture.

Later it flew again, perched on a rock at the top of the steep slope to the north of the bay, and was finally chased off by a pair of hooded crows.
