Join myself and Jackie Walker, my co-guide, for the week on the wonderful Isle of Mull. This trip is now in it’s 8th year and continues to be a firm favourite with guests, many returning for a second time such is the appeal of Mull and it’s abundant wildlife.
One of the many highlights will be an extended trip to the island of Lunga in the Treshnish Isles. This stunning little island is a seabird spectacular with Shags, Razorbills, Guillemots, Kittiwakes and of course everyone’s favourite Puffins, thousands of them. Normal boat trips only stay max 2 hours on the island, our stay will be extended well beyond that and into the late summer evening allowing 6 hours plus photographing time.
Mull is renowned for its population of White Tailed Sea Eagles so to give our guests the best possible chance to see and photograph these huge impressive birds we will charter our own boat which will only have our own group on board giving plenty space for everyone to enjoy this experience.
Through out rest of time we will explore various other parts of the island in search of a variety of species, our main targets being red deer, waders like common sandpiper and snipe, herons & otters (please not this tour is a multi species trip and although otters are something we aim to find they are not our only focus) also many enchanting small bird’s like stonechats and meadow pipits will be possible. Of course we will always be on look out for the likes of Hen Harriers and Short Eared Owls that we do come across on occasions, although these encounters are problematic photography wise. These excursions will be split into two (2 guests per guide and vehicle) allowing more space in vehicles and better chances when we encounter wildlife. Mull is an extremely scenic island so of course any landscape opportunities will not be overlooked either. Each small group will rotate between myself and Jackie so equal amount time will be spent with each of us.
The tour will begin on the Sunday evening over dinner and full photography days will start on the Monday through till departure after breakfast on the Friday morning.. Days are very long at this time year allowing photography up 9-30pm and later. So to ensure we do not burn ourselves out on the non boat trip days we will take a few hours down time in the middle part of the day to relax and recharge batteries.
Our accommodation is of a very high standard in a modern large house in a stunning location with great views. Each guest will have their own private room (no sharing). With group size only being 4 guests and many occasions these being split into 2s you can be assured of almost 1-1 attention from myself and Jackie who will do our utmost to make this trip a memorable one for you.
