Friday Islay Picture #176 - Wildlife Watching at the Sound of Islay

Friday Islay Picture in stencil

Mixed feelings with today's Friday Islay picture. Today isn't just any Friday for me. Today would have been my late mother's 70th birthday, if the devil cancer hadn't killed her 2.5 years ago. I prefer to think of her with all the great memories of experiences we had together, like the Islay walking week in 2004. This picture was taken during our first walk of the week, with DJ along the Sound of Islay, my mother is on the right:

I can't remember what DJ had spotted here and told us to look for, but I think it probably was a bird, possibly an Eagle. We also spotted an adder during the walk, I think not far from where this picture was taken. Certainly a great experience for my mother.

As usual I will post a larger version of the picture on the Islay Pictures photoblog on Saturday morning, but before that I'd like to repeat my twice annual appeal for donations to various cancer (research) charities. Here are a few cancer charities which could need your help:

My birthday present for my mother will be on its way shortly.
