Fuming as yet another balloon ends up on the Isle. This one is pointlessly filled with shiny plastic discs which scatter everywhere on bursting. Just ban them.

Make it stop! The biggest cliff currently has a waterfall down it's face with a slick of guano oozing out from the base and spreading out to sea. The birds & us would like a break from it now.

More rain, more guillemot squalor. A tweet doesn't convey the aroma that fills the nostrils as I peer down to check for any losses. All generally well for the birds if not my lungs.

FIRST PUFFIN CHICK ON ISLE OF MAY. An adult with fish has been seen tonight. 12 days earlier than last year but bang on the long term average which goes back to 1973.
