Hi!
I know, with so many species on a single little island it's really hard to decide which can be a favourite specie of animal over the other, but possibly it can be a funny thread, you think? Or also a different way to simply speak of animal...
What Are Your Favourite Animals?
Obviously, i'm not a specialist at all, i like only speak simply of it... Smile

For Me, first of all i really like The Corncracker! I see it firstly on the DVD of Gordon Yates. They do a funny rumours, you think?

The Corncrake is one of my favourites as well although I've never actually seen one, but heard them several times. I love the sounds they make and Gordon has some really nice images Big Grin

My number one favourite bird is the Gannet followed by the Hen Harrier and Golden Eagle. Oh and I love the flight of the Tern and the sounds of the snipe and I think Geese are very special as well. My other favourite animal is the otter which I've seen several times (including young otters) around the Port Ellen lighthouse and the seals Wink

...On the road to Bunnhabhain, me and my girlfriend while we were walking to distillery by Persabus Pottery have spotted a lot of female pheasant and eagle (but i don't know exactly wich species) three or four times in the sky.
It's really a wonder walking where it's possible to enjoy incredible landscapes of Islay, in example lakes and magnificent plants and flowers, or impressive vision of Jura with its Paps...


...Islay, Islay, and of course, ISLAY!

This reminds me of the other forum topic we have on favourite places on Islay. The road to Bunnahabhain is one of my favourite places on Islay as well. The pheasants you saw were probably near Ardnahoe, there are lots of them over there, and these views... Wink

If you pass the Persabus Farm and Pottery you'll see the heatherhouse after half a mile or so and you can enjoy the best view on Islay, well in my humble opinion of course. What we often saw there as well are buzzards. I'm not an expert on wildlife but normally eagles fly a lot higher than buzzards. Eagles are a lot bigger and have "fingers" at the end of their wing tips. Binoculars are essential on Islay Wink

There is a very interesting website about Eagles here. Good to see how big they really are!
