Mull - Iona

A day of cultural and social history beckoned - on Iona.  There was of course no sign of Corncrake, despite one still calling the previous week.... but with the monastery and nunnery  beckoning, who cares? Hmmm, I'll spare you the nitty gritty on those two attractions eh.......

Idyllic island, white sandy beaches - was I in the Med?

I did have my camera with me and it came out for some Rock Doves :-) They are quite smart birds and these are the real deal here

Even smarter in flight with the contrasting white underwing.

Suddenly, they all got up in panic......

Yeah, not wishing to end up as dinner, they managed to elude the young male Peregrine which came steaming in....
