27/05/2016: One Red Kite and Many Guillemots

2hr survey. Start time 10:50
Weather condition: Rain intervals, sea state 0-1, visibility >10km, light swell
1 Red Kite and about 120 Guillemots

During the survey there weren’t any cetacean sightings, however we did have sightings of a Red Kite flying in an easterly direction about 200m from the boat. Also, there were three individual nesting sites of Guillemots recorded during the trip – with two of them quite far from the main Guillemot colony. The population estimates of the sites at the time were of 20, 20 and 80 individuals.
