Lock down from coronavirus has restricted our movement as it has to all our fellow Scots. Now that it has eased we have been able to travel further. Since we do not live at the coast one of the bird groups we were missing was Seabirds. We lost out on our planned trip to the Isle of May. It is a great place to see and experience seabirds, however it is not the only place. Accordingly we headed up the East coast and found a good mainland site.
From the outset the noise and smells assault the senses but a world without that would be a very much poorer place. Being late in the season we saw young birds but this Razorbill caught our attention. It seemed to be checking out the lower "flats", perhaps to check there's no collision when it takes flight.
