Afternoon all. Round the cliffs on Sunday to see how the birds are getting on with the chicks. Seems that I am too early this year, some Kittiwakes have nests with eggs, but did not see any eggs from the Razorbills, and not sure about the Guillimots as they remained sitting. The usual squabble for space on these dangerous old sandstone cliffs at Auchmithie, near Arbroath. Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's upload.

Well captured, Moira, they certainly pick some very precarious places to raise their young Smile Carol
