Some fantastic bird sightings on our two trips yesterday, with a high count of around 30 storm petrels and around 800 Manx shearwaters! Several of the rare bridled guillemots were showing on their nesting ledges and we spotted some beautiful peregrine falcons along the cliff face. Interestingly, great northern divers were seen in both their summer and winter plumage. We also recorded a handful of grey seals in the afternoon but no cetaceans.
