We had another beautiful weekend at St Abb's, this Scarlet Pimpernel looked stunning in the sun. Our first Shag chicks were spotted on Sunday, with around 12 of our regularly monitored nests containing tiny, naked, wrinkled chicks.  They're not very cute by conventional standards, but they definitely have a certain reptilian charm. The adults are keeping them well protected but hopefully we will be able to get some photos soon. Lizy
