Big eagles

June 2nd, 2014 By James

Here at Bigtop, we like to see an eagle or two. But we usually only see them when we play computer golf at 11am. And even then it’s not very often.

Last week I visited Scotland and took a trip over to Mull. Have you been to Mull? It’s lovely. Really LOVELY.

We drove across to ‘Mull Eagle Watch’ hoping to see a glimpse of the white-tailed eagles. It’s Ranked #2 of 26 attractions in Isle of Mull. The friendly rangers, John and Rachel, took us up a woodland path where we stood for two hours, under a burning hot sun (yes, in Scotland) looking at trees through binoculars. Nothing. No eagles. Actually that’s not quite true as we saw two golden eagles. Some people said they could see the nest. Others couldn’t make it out. Some people said they could see the chick’s head. Others couldn’t make it out.

Then just as we were about to leave, a HUGE white-tailed eagle flew up into the sky and circled around. They have an 8ft wingspan so even from a distance it was an impressive sight.

Brilliant stuff.

You should go to Mull.

When I grow up …

March 31st, 2014 By Amy

When I grow up I want to be a proper, in your face, ‘look at me, aren’t I freaking clever!’ Graphic Designer. I hold The Grand Budapest Hotel completely responsible for my new found enthusiasm. If you want to be a Graphic Designer, aim high and look at this. If you just want a visual feast and an exceptionally good night out, go and see it at your local cinema. What are you waiting for? Go, go, go!!
