Fulmars off the West Coast were a welcome change and a treat to watch as five cruised over the rolling swell. Joining them were a single Gannet and Common Scoter, five Kittiwakes and 76 Guillemots. A good number of Herring Gulls, 50, passed close by the north hide heading from the gull colony close by and down the West Coast towards the Narrows along with five Greater Black-backed Gulls.
|A fresh mystery pellet at the Plantation including a fairly sizeable bone. A Common Buzzard has been present in the area all winter and could be the likely culprit although other species cannot be ruled out. Any comments would be much appreciated.|
