Since Jan we've had a total of 8 definite White billed Divers on the western isles survey even though none were seen in Feb and we didn't manage to survey in May due to weather. It's a shame May didn't go ahead because it was likely to be a good month for them and should have produced some summer plumages birds. Even though we'd had such good results one this month was a surprise, we thought they would have all cleared off by now. Interestingly it was our first immature bird all the others seen well enough to age have been adults. I got some pics which I'll post later with some other seabird shots.

What was a little annoying was the news that the day after we'd finished and come back to Oban that a Sabs and Red necked Phal were seen from a boat off Mull and a Roller was at Salen nr where we saw the Pied billed Grebe earlier in the year. We normally sail out of Tobermory on Mull but this time joined the boat in Oban, bollocks!
