Wild Swans And Geese

November 22, 2020 at 1:11 pm










One of the reasons for going to Islay in late Autumn is to marvel at the thousands of Geese and enjoy the passage of Whooper Swans. As this was our 108th visit we have seen it all before but it was just as exciting as our first visit in 1976. In fact it is even better now because there are Sea Eagles trying to catch the Geese. One morning we encountered five Eagles and I would expect that within a couple of years Islay will be better for seeing Eagles than Mull.
