Lots of sea-birds around just now. A pelagic last week to the Bell Rock Lighthouse gave the local bird club members close views of Little Gulls, Gannets, Fulmars, Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Razorbills, a few Shearwaters and even Porpoises. Then yesterday a coastal visit with lovely warm sunshine had us enjoying more Gannets, Fulmars and Kittiwakes with the added bonus of Sandwich Terns, Eiders, Shags, Cormorants, a Whimbrel and a Bonxie. The beach had a wee flock of nicely plumaged Dunlin and Sanderling as well as a very confiding Knot (pictured) intent on feeding along the shore line irrespective of the photographer! As a wader fan it doesn't get better.
