Saturday was a bit of a write off strong winds and constant drizzle, the only birds we could find were 2 Willow Warblers and a Lesserthroat. The sheep do appear to eat the seaweed tho!

Sunday we had light northerlies so went seawatching, didn't get the hoped for mega close views of stuff North Ron gets when the wind is stronger but 21 Sooties included some close-ish if not mega views, the Fulmars are amazing tho right in front of the hide and looking in thru the flaps. Other notables were a Basking Shark and 2 Black Guillemot and a few Stormies. Normally seawatching involves calling stuff out with directions relating to flags, ships or drowning swimmers but I reckon calling stuff out as "just in front of Fair Isle" is pretty cool. On the land we had 2 Willows and a Whinchat.
