From Pt of Buckquoy

4.5 hours from 08:25

Fulmar - 11,394 W; quite a few east too in the last hour or so.
Blue Fulmar 2W (a dark morph and then a double dark morph, probably missed a few
of these too)
Manx Shearwater - 24W
Sooty Shearwater - 16W
European Storm Petrel - 1W just along the shore, a few possibles earlier,
further out as well but the waves got in the way....
Bonxie - 32W
Gannet - 810W
Puffin - 5W
Tystie - 1 juv W
Kittiwake - 27W (all adults)
Teal - 13W
Wigeon - 2W

Stormie was at 09:10; shearwaters from 09:35 peak at around 11:45. If the wind
had been more WNW rather than WSW it would have been much better than this I
