Greetings from Valle del Deglio.  Three stately Short-toed (Snake) eagles have been circling overhead.  Here are two pictures of the young one on the day of its first flight over the valley.

Below are directions to Seacroft, Tarskavaig, so you have them should you need them.

Directions for Seacroft, 15 Tarskavaig, Sleat, Isle of Skye IV46 8SA.

Coming from the Mallaig/Armadale Ferry: Take the A851 towards Broadford. Turn left to Tarskavaig after 2km. Continue for 6 km on this single track road and then turn left down into Tarskavaig. Turn right at the telephone box and 15 Tarskavaig is 100m along on the right. The number is on the gate. Go through the gate and up the track to the house. (In case of doubt The Blue Studio gallery is clearly signed and Seacroft is behind it.) Coming from the Skye bridge: Take the A850 signed Portree. As you enter Broadford, turn left on the A851 signed Armadale/Ferry. After 17km, through Kilbeg village, turn right signed Tarskavaig then follow above. There is an alternative turn off from the A851 after 15 km, signed Ord/Tarskavaig, but this involves a longer stretch on single track road.

Soon we will be meeting on the isle of Golden and Sea eagles!

Buon viaggio to all,
Kinthissa and Ben
