27th of August 2012.
 
Arisaig to Morar – West of Scotland.
A wet walk today with full foul weather gear on, I’m one of those people you often see walking in the rain! Leaving the campsite we followed a route of white sandy beaches and B-roads towards Morar a small village 3 miles away.
Birds seen today were Dunlin, Cormorant, Oystercatcher, Great Black Backed Gull, Gannet, Manx Shearwater, Pied Wagtail, Grey Heron, Greylag, Meadow Pipit, Rock Pipit, Buzzard, Goldfinch, Red Breasted Merganser, Little Grebe, Curlew, Hooded Crow, Jackdaw, House Martin, Swallow, Starling, Common Tern, Tree Sparrow and my first Scottish Robin.


Other notable wildlife seen today were Red Deer with their young and the free roaming huge Highland cattle with their calves.
