Thursday 12th April comments: Its been another cracking day on the islands as breeding seabirds returned in good numbers. It was great to see the vast numbers of Guillemots, Razorbills and Puffins return to the island tops - it won't be long before all three species are on eggs. Kittiwakes have started next building whilst Shags continue to sit - having been on eggs since 23rd March!

Bird highlights included a Great Skua north, whilst our first Common Terns (two of them) were discovered in our evening roost of Sandwich terns. Only a matter of time before the Arctic Terns are back - oh joy, Arctic Terns...I remember them. peck.
