There is a lot going on on the island at the moment, lots of visitors, some striking weather and loads of chicks about. Here are some of the sights of the last couple of days. There have been some breathtaking puffin days recently. Visitors have been able to fill their boots with them. Even the puffin mad visitors that wesometimes get have been going home sated.
There have been some fantastic mornings, this was my view from the tern hide on an early watch. And some dramatic evenings, this the view from South Ness looking back towards to island.
And then there are the odd things you see that get you through the day. A herring gull sitting proud on one of the Kirkhaven navigation markers . The kittiwake roosts are building up and they are great at creating 3-D poo works of art. And a lone female eider marches purposefully up from the sea at Kirkhaven, she knew exactly where she wanted to go even though it was right through the tern colony. What a place.
