Offshore visibility was poor in this morning's SW gale and heavy rain. Nothing out of the ordinary but I enjoyed close views of many of the birds which did pass by: i.e. 70 Gannets, 120 Manx Shearwaters, 12 Fulmars and 37 Kittiwakes. Around 40% of the kitties were 1st summer birds. Lets see what tomorrow brings.
