Stormy weather is not good for birds - it can easily blow them off course or just relocate them somewhere else. It is, however, good for birdwatchers. We are delighted when a bird turns up where it is not normally found.
Such was the case with this Brunnich's Guillemot. It breeds generally within the Arctic Circle. Autumnal storms have resulted in it turning up on Scotland's east coast where it is a very rare occurrence. If it survives the next couple of days there's a good chance it will make it back to more northern climes. In fact it regularly dived suggesting that it was in reasonable health so fingers crossed for out Arctic friend.
