It is peak puffin time past Crail for the next month. There were hundreds passing every quarter hour this evening within a kilometer of the shore. I also saw my first great skua of the year. Huge, brown, bird of prey like and with prominent white wing flashes. Last year was a poor one for skuas (except long -tailed skuas): we are due a good season.

Great skua. In a good late summer season we can have about one or two an hour past Crail on some days (JA)
