Not much to report except the Ravens displaying over our garden (by The Shunan) for an hour or so this morning, I counted 10 at one time but I think there were at least 12 - they kept flying into the trees and flying off over the back.
Loch of Bosquoy holds a couple of grebes but they were very distant and the light was not so good and they were hungry grebes and kept going under the surface - looked like Slavs though.
Fulmar were going south at about 3,800 / hour yesterday afternoon from Marwick Bay, at the same time about 150/hour were going north. This is a real contrast to a week or so ago when the only Fulmars to be seen were buzzing around the cliffs or sitting on ledges.
The pilot whale is still on the beach.
