Monday 5th May comments: The breeding season continues to advance as more and more birds are on eggs. With Puffins, Guillemots and Razorbills all settled, more Eiders are nesting whilst it won't be long before we are celebrating our first Shag chicks!

However it's not all go for everything as the last few breeding species have yet to get started (as usual). Kittiwakes have started frantically nest building whilst the Terns; Common, Sandwich and Arctic continue to display overhead and it won't be long before they are settled and pecking heads... 

You have been warned.
