On a recent trip to an Island called Skomer off the Welsh coast, trying to get some shots of Puffins, having carried several other lenses with me, it stayed on the camera all day, covering landscape, birds, butterfly and flower shots, I also had fun taking shots of Photographers hauling the Canon big guns around - (some Puffin shots in my 70-300 Gallery album if you want to look). Good luck with your choice.

I carried a 400mm 5.6 across Staffa last year to photograph Puffins and they just kept coming too close to focus, Fortunately I also took a 70-200 F4 IS which proved ideal. I must try Skomer some time, its a bit closer to where I live than Mull.
