16th May

Foul weather for the morning thwarted most birding plans; a seawatch in the afternoon produced 23 Manx Shearwaters and lots of Puffins, but none of the northbound skua passage we were hoping for. The American Wigeon was still on Hooking Loch, and the crowds of waders included 349 Knots - the second highest count of the species ever recorded here.
