Above - The Kittiwake colony at Cullernose Point is in full swing now with pairs displaying everywhere. I am pleased with the third picture as this is hand held through my bins!
There was a big swell on the sea today even though the weather was calm on shore. There must have been a storm or a low pressure a long way out to make it this rough. The waves could be heard pounding from well inland. The reason for a short visit here was to look for a plant - Spring Squill, that is usually found on northern and western areas. No trace today, but I'll check again in two or three weeks...
On the way here there was a freshly dead Red Squirrel on the road. I nearly took a photo to put on here but it was a bit depressing, such a lovely animal wasted.
