For the last couple of days a team from Scottish Natural Heritage have been monitoring the breeding seabirds in the area. Their data (along with our data from our annual counts) will feed into the National Seabird Count project. The aim is to get a full count of all breeding seabirds in the UK. The last time this was back in 2000 - it'll be interesting to see how the counts differ. After a tricky start yesterday with the cliffs shrouded in haar; today the weather was ideal, no wind and a calm sea so that counts could take place from the cliff tops and from the sea. Liza.
