Routine seawatch showed most recent candidates,i.e. Red-throated Diver and Whimbrel, to be on the move again but nothing else of note. I get the impression that there are more Eider around the bays on the southern Rinns than in the last couple of years so hopefully the breeding season will be more productive than of late when very few ducklings survived. The juxta-presence of large gulls ( G.B.B.G. and Herring Gull) is an inconvenient feature of the nearby offshore islands!!
Until Tuesday next I am shutting down this site so await the various entries then on which to catch up on what has been happening.
