An April afternoon on Islay, a horse is grazing in the mild afternoon sun on the Oa.
Unfortunately I didn’t have my big telephoto lens to hand when we spotted this male Hen Harrier hunting on the Oa in the south east of Islay. Still, we got some great views of it and even at this distance it was a beautiful sight.
I don’t know its name (nothing is mentioned on my OS map) but this is a burn flowing through a small glen in the far south of Islay, close to the most southerly point on Islay. We had to cross it during our walk on the Oa during the Islay walking week 2019.
