04-05-10 A Word in your Wheatear
Taking advantage of the sunny Bank Holiday weather we took a walk out to Eilean na h-Eitaig.

This tidal island lies off Oldshoremore beach and was where we spotted this rather nice Wheatear (now added to the Wildlife section of the Gallery).

It's a pleasant walk requiring a bit of a scramble over rocks at times, and gives a great view back to Oldshoremore and off along the coast.

Also spotted on our walk were Oystercatchers, gulls of various types, Curlew, Fulmars, and a solitary pair of Eider ducks sitting quietly on a rock.

The view of the beach from Eilean na h-Eitaig, and Eilean na h-Eitaig itself:
