Dry but crisp start to the season

As the season gets under way the glorious weather stays with us nice dry sunny days with a real chill in the air but once again we manage to miss the snow the boat trips have started with great sightings of the white tailed eagles playing in bloody bay as well as the golden eagles tussling with the ravens in the bay. whilst harbour porpoise play in the water around the boats, the seals hide from the wind on the rocks around Calve island & the otter is now being seen daily feeding around the boats in Tobermory harbour but please take care whilst driving down the main st because the otter has a tendancy to run infront of vehicles especially in the area of the co-op.
On land as the season starts and all the attractions open their doors to the public and the town starts getting busy and spring is beginning to appear the birds are full of spring song the eagles have started laying in their nests around the island the red deer are chewing the heads of the daffodil buds and awaiting that first bite of lush spring grass.
no whales have been reported off the whalewatches leaving Tobermory however Calmac ferries and their passengers this morning reported seeing a sperm whale just out of Oban what a fantastic start to the season.
