A surprise sighting today of an otter behind the new flood wall. Strong waves and the swell had forced it to take shelter on the rocks. 180 more words

We have gannets! They arrived just before the bad storm last week. We have about 10 now. On Fidra the fulmars are returning, slowly but surely, along with some common gulls. 65 more words
