29th January 2015

Weather: NW force 8 with squalls
As so often happens at this time of year, gale force winds do not guarantee many sea birds, and the best was an immature Shag, a Red-breasted Merganser and a sizable passage of large gulls with over a thousand moving south west .Interestingly for the second day running no seals were hauled out on the west hoyle, no doubt due to weather conditions. It was noted that the tide was still in long after expected, reminding us that weather as well as tide tables should considered when going to the islands.
