Happy Cows, Basking Sharks and a fire on Coll

Farmer went to check his cows in the field below the Treshnish Cottages this afternoon. Contentedly sitting in the species rich grassland, in the bright sunlight. Just out from the boathouse rocks was a huge Basking Shark.

There have been lots of sightings over the last 10 days or so, just off shore, and easy to spot.

We could also see a fire burning on Coll. Muirburn stops mid April, so we assumed this was an accidental fire - clouds of smoke billowing above the low lying land. It looked fairly menacing.
