Puffin Island, MNA meeting 10/7/10

A most successful day and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Numerous shags, far outnumbering the cormorants, three eider, four red-breasted mergansers, the inevitable hordes of guillemots on the north-facing ledges intermingled with  kittiwakes on their seaweed nests, close views of at least 10 puffins and altogether about 17 black guillemots on the water, razorbills dashing to and fro, gannets further offshore, a rock pipit flying across the bows of the boat – all to the accompaniment of  numerous sandwich terns.
