a bit more like it....

A decent wee south-westerly blow this evening so headed out to Galley, and was duly rewarded with a fine cory's shearwater, more or less the first bird in the scope (101)! A steady trickle of them past over the next hour and a half, with a wee rush towards the end, resulting in a final tally of 37, plus 1 storm petrel and 2 puffins. Not a bad start to the seawatch season - there'll be a few folk out first thing I'd say.
