Picture of a Golden Eagle flying past a flag pole surrounded by treesEagles are big birds, but nature is even bigger, far bigger. So to spot one you still need to look quite closely to see it. Here’s one spotted from the ferry travelling up the Sound of Islay to Port Askaig, flying past Dunlossit House (not in the picture. The flag pole is in the grounds, at the foot of it one of the old cannons).
