I'm an honorary member of the Mull Bird Club

The RSPB's Dave Sexton & Debby Thorne with TUB
You've gotta agree - this is beautiful!
Today was a bit of a birdy one spent with some of the Mull Bird Club's finest. Traveling around we picked up more Hen Harriers, a Sea Eagle, Merlin, Otters and Common Seals. The scenery was totally eye-catching. The company fantastic. The hospitality humbling. You have to get yourselves up here as a warm welcome certainly awaits you.

I was particularly touched when I was invited to become an honorary member of the Mull Bird Club. It was an invitation that I could not turn down. I will wear the badge with pride.

If anyone from the RSPB is reading this, I must say that Debby Thorne (White-tailed Eagle Information Officer) and Dave Sexton (RSPB Mull Officer) are top class. They totally looked after me and Dave is the type of bloke that would lay down his life for you. Of course, our B&B hosts Andy and Diana Oldacre (Chair & Vice Chair of the Mull Bird Club respectively) were dynamite and if anyone wants to stay on Mull let me know and I'll send you their details. They were warm, friendly and beautiful people.

Phew, enough gushing. Time for sleep. A long journey south ahead tommorow.

I'm envious. I've only been to Mull twice, but both times was magical.
