Mull photo tour
19th May, 2018. Our annual photographic tour on Mull, based at Killiechronan House, enjoyed unusually good weather this year – and few midges. We had good luck on the wildlife front too this time, including sea eagles at quite close range, dolphins on the way to Lunga, even closer, and obliging otters that allowed the whole group chances to photograph from quite close range. While Lunga remains, for a variety of reasons, my favourite place in the world (!) to photograph puffins, it is noticeable that the catastrophic decline in numbers elsewhere in their range hasn’t left this colony unaffected and we didn’t see quite as many as in previous years. The delayed spring meant the we were just in time to see peak spring leaf-out, although there were fewer bluebells than the same time last year. Charlotte, assisted by our young friend, Beth Watson, kept everyone well fed, morning, noon and night.
