The Isle of Skye has a good selection of outstanding wildlife. Otters, seals (common and grey), eagles (golden and sea), deer (red and roe), nesting seabirds, mountain and moorland birds and off the coast porpoises, dolphins and minky whales. However seeing them can be difficult!
The aims of the course are to take you to the places where you will hopefully encounter them, but nothing can be guaranteed. Small course numbers will hopefully mean we can get close to the wildlife without disturbing it too much.
Warm dull coloured clothing will also be extremely useful as will a good pair of binoculars. (Some of these items can be supplied if you have nothing suitable). The law heavily protects certain species, like sea and golden eagle, so that even approaching a nest site is strictly forbidden. All that can be done is to walk in the general area where these species have been seen and hope for the best. Which again is what this course is all about - walking, waiting, watching and having a lot of good luck! Although we hope to see many of these creatures, we will also be on the lookout for signs of their presence. So another part of the course is about basic tracking and general guides to successful nature observation.
