One of our regular visitors to Mull has been posting some fantastic footage of wildlife captured on his trip to the island over the Easter weekend.
Andy Tait has been a frequent visitor to the island for many years and it was seeing the wildlife here that inspired him to start making wildlife videos.

We have also had more reports of Bottlenose Dolphins seen from Calgary Bay yesterday and there was a report of a Minke Whale within the last couple of days so we are hoping that we will start seeing them from our trips any day now. There have also been reports of Basking Sharks and Common Dolphins which are species that are usually seen later in the year and there has also been a report of a Humpback Whale. This species is not a regular sight around the Isle of Mull, however there are 1 or 2 sightings every season.
