Seabirds breeding on offshore oilrigs…. How common is this? Have you documented or know of literature on seabirds breeding on oilrigs, please share. In Norway so far four oilrigs are inhabited by breeding kittiwakes. How about your country? Please RT!

An otter predating a Common Gull. It was watching (but not photographing) an otter nail a Gannet recently that reminded me of this image from spring. This week I will post an otter with different prey every day, which should be fun!

I love Fulmar, even though they stink and spit fishy oil at me. Secretly, I think they love me back 🥰

The last night at St Kilda's legendary Puff Inn which has now closed its doors forever. The end of an era but a great farewell packed with dancing on the pool table and the final signatures added to the ceiling. 🍻

Rare sight on the May for me! Not ever seen Gannets on the island and saw 2 in one day coming home on Thursday. Maybe The Bass is full? 🤔✌️

The Isle of May still has plenty on offer from open access to lighthouses, migrant birds and plenty more. Read the update blog to discover why a visit late in the season is well worth it...
