5th June

Although an extremely quiet day for birds, a pod of at least 5 Orcas just offshore from the lighthouse more than made up for the dearth of migrants. Initially seen far out to sea from the north of the island, they eventually found their way to Seal Skerry and spent a while harrying its eponymous inhabitants before heading quickly out to the north-east in front of a hurriedly assembled crowd of onlookers.

Lingering birds included the Bean Goose and a drake Garganey on Hooking Loch.
