EAGLE OVER THE CROFT

Working down on the croft today was one of those special days.  I was busy planting raspberry canes in a 10 metre bed, having lined the bottom with cardboard and then infilling with a layer of seaweed topped with a deep layer of compost. Whilst I was doing this I got a sensation of a shadow going over, it has been a bright sunny but cool day after a night of frost.
Looking straight up a very large broad winged bird with slow moving  wings was flying up above me , a golden eagle which made its way with the same slow wing beats into the distant corrie of Beinn Alligin.  Probably an older adult bird returning to its nesting grounds,.................... A day like today would have provided some very clear views of the Torridon landscape from the eagles perspective.  More usually just lately the ravens and buzzards have been flying over the scree slopes and terraces of the South face of Liathach  and unlike the quiet passage of the eagle they can be quite vocal confronting each other. But equally on a day of swirling mists very evocative of our wild land.
