Wildlife Sightings – Crossbills, Otters and Sea Eagles

In the last couple of weeks, Tony spotted a Scottish Crossbill, which is a very rare sighting for this part of the world.  Easy to spot though, they are a fantastic bright orange.

I thought this would also be a great opportunity to post some of our favourite sightings from last year.  We managed to catch a baby otter early in the year while we were out walking along the shore of Loch Duich.

Towards the end of the year Tony caught one of the Glenelg white tailed sea eagles on camera.
