So I spent my first couple of days exploring Loch's and bays on South Uist, if I am honest I didn't find much and unexpected but very welcome warm weather was producing some harsh light for photography. I also found light direction on South Uist where ever I went was generally not in my favour. However you can only photograph in the conditions on the day so I just got on with it. As in Mull earlier on the wildlife/bird front things seemed a little quieter than expected. On exploring my first few bays I did come across a Pomarine Skua, I think see photo! The racket being made by Oyster Catchers in every bay I visited was intense, they were busy chasing gulls or anything that ventured into their space. After a couple of days exploring South Uist I headed to North Uist where I would base myself for the rest of my visit.
