RSPB

Today Struan and Bruce picked up members of the RSBP from Craignure to take them to a secret location to ring Sea Eagle chicks. The RSBP team was taken ashore and waited for them to climb the hillside, then they had to climb up a 60 foot tree to the nest. The reason being to put a ring on the leg of any chicks, so they can be identified in the future. The ringing went well and the weather held out allowing them to get the job done quickly. While the team were waiting they saw the Sea Eagle parents soaring and also a Golden Eagle carrying prey, a great sight.
In the afternoon the team had a wildlife trip which went well, with Puffins in the Firth of Lorne and plenty of seals on the Creags. The team took the passengers under Connel Bridge which had a strong Ebbing tide.
A great day to be on the water.
