Afternoon sea watching form Ardnamurchan Point
The usual species were seen again throughout the day including Buzzards, a pair of Ravens and 4 Oystercatchers. In the afternoon we decided to make a family trip to Ardnamurchan Point (the most westerly point in Great Britain). Along the journey we frequently passed herds of Red Deer (most consisting of a dozen or more stags or hinds). 2 Stonechats were also neighbouring the road and only seconds after sitting down at the most westerly point in Great Britain I was gripped by the amazing sight as hundreds of Manx Shearwaters riding over the waves and harnessing the energy from each individual updraught.
