Notes from Richard Atkinson -  This was early in the breeding season and so the puffins were just nest building so no pictures with their mouths full of sand eels. Some we busy taking grass into their burrows and we saw one puffin stealing nest material from another’s nest. 
We only saw the shorteared owl briefly but I did witness a couple of magpies steal a vole from one of the owls. There were masses of Guillemots and razor bills on the cliffs but were not too easy to get a good angle for a shot given that we had to stay on the recognized paths.
