It's time for my annual Kittiwake update. There were three individuals on the thirteenth of March but it has taken another couple of weeks until their numbers have got back up into the hundreds. This is a bit later than last year when they were nesting by the fifteenth.
They have spent winter far out at sea and their return to land always fills me with hope for better weather.
It's lovely to hear their cries filling the harbour, a timely reminder to get the Heron ready for launch.
