  • Thank you Hazel, James and Chris on one of the Serenity boats know us so told us that the Leucistic guillemot was back in the same place with an egg we got to see it twice but always behind others so these are the best i could get, Friday looks like it might turn nice so will go out again and hopfully get a better view.

    Quite a large crop on this one.

  • It's nice to see the coloration doesn't seem to have negatively impacted this bird. I wonder if the young will be pale as well.

  • Cracking shots Jim I can't pick a favourite but do like that Shag.
    Glad to see the weather has picked up for you, a mate has just had a week on Mull and had heavy rain every day.

  • @ Hazel, I just hope she does manage to bring the young one up thats if the egg is still there its been wild here today I have to force my way up the road that wind was trying ist best to blow me back so only went to the end of the street and took shelter on the gable end of an house and took a few picture of the waves coming over the harbour walls :)

    @ Nige, lets hope we do see the young one and what colour it is :)

    @ Alan, Thank you i have got loads of pictures just no time to get to them we are trying to get out as often as we can staying in doing pictures is a drag when your on holiday but i am trying to get a few ready :)
