Sumburgh head action

We now visited Sumburgh Head twice in recent weeks and its been very quiet from a visitor point of view. in fact we were the only visitors for most of the time.

 Good news is that lot of Puffin, Guillemot and Razorbill are bring in food, seems the best for many years.
Arctic and Gt Skua

 This has attracted a lot of Skuas, mostly Gt Skua but a couple of Arctic as well but the Gt Skua seems to be top dog
 Kittiwake with nesting material

 Gt Skua brings down Guillemot who releases fish to right

 Lots of Guillemot on the stack down at Sumburgh Head

 Rock Pipit and Wheatear also seem to be doing well

 That's why I haven't seen many Killer whales this year, have been looking on the sea

 Puffins bring in fish have normally gone straight down tunnel

 Good to hear the Kittiwakes although numbers have been greatly reduced since the 1980's
