On the Palace patch Little Auk was also added (yesterday), and early birds for the year were represented by a Bonxie, extraordinarily early.
Bonxie at Palace yesterday
The seawatch from Point of Buckquoy yesterday was interesting with Fulmar going 3,000 an hour, a few Guillemot and Razorbill, a very early Puffin and the afore mentioned Little Auks.
There were seven Brown Hares in the Palace fields.
A roost of 111 Purple Sandpipers at the Whale Bone were a good sight.
Tonight it is blowing again and around midnight it should reach a peak with gusts of over 70mph.
