    Been a few birds landing on the boat the last few days are they migrating or just lost their way, We are roughly level with Dundee and about half way towards Norway, Turnstone, Dunlin, Grey Wagtail and a Grey Heron.

    Migrating I would think. The Oil rigs and boats can turn up some wonderful birds, sadly sometimes near deaths door with exhaustion. You should keep this thread going with what you keep finding.

    Next weeks winds look interesting, Easterlies blowing straight over from the continent.

    There seems to be plenty starting to move now. I think that birding is going to start to liven up again (thank god).

    How about some pnotos from the boat cullpacket?

    Nice birds. As Dafi says things should start moving on a bigger scale soon, but I presume they will let you have some time off at some point...LOL.
    Be sure to keep us updated as you can.
