Start the long trip from Kent to Oban, Isles of Mull & Iona tomorrow morning.
It's not really a bird trip but I will try my best to do as much as I can. Fingers crossed that I come across some of the stars of our bird life.
Eight days away my birthday present to my wife. She could pick anywhere in the uk she wanted and this was her choice. All that talk of white tail sea eagles and golden eagles must be working.
So you will not be hearing from me for a little while but will enjoy catching up when I get back.
Hope you both have a nice time Robert look forward to seeing some photos when you get back.
My photos are on Flickr and Website
Your wife made an excellent choice, Robert, I'm sure you both will not be disappointed.
Have a great trip, safe journey and many happy returns to your wife.

As long as the weather isn't too unkind I'm sure you and your wife will find the trip to Iona something special. I know I did when I visited many years ago.

Like everyone else I have theories and opinions on lots of things I know b*gger all about.
Have a great time, Robert. Happy birthday to Mrs Robert. You've obviously done a great job in selling all the wonderful birds you might see there.

Don't forget to also look out for Dolphins, Porpoises and Whales, we saw the latter two 8 years ago, enjoy Robert
