Hurray - the fog lifted just enough for myself and Jill to be able to get out and monitor our auks (guillemots and razorbills) this afternoon. Very pleased, as now is the time when all sorts of things are happening. For instance, the guillemot chicks could start to jump any day now, and the kittiwake should be hatching their first chicks. Lo and behold - there were quite a few kittiwake chicks about today, no doubt they have been hatching out under cover of fog over the last couple of days! Forgot to take my camera out with me, but here's a photo of a newly hatched chick from a previous year. Liza.
