Shags have started nesting at Castlefoot Rock. See photo above with their mating crests visible. They threatened that herring gull until he agreed to leave them alone. 

Pamela Maule gets the 'eagle eyes' prize, having spotted some kittiwakes arriving on the 13th of March. There is an old superstition that kittiwakes should arrive here in Dunbar by the 16th of March for a ‘happy and prosperous summer’ so they made it with a comfortable 3 days to spare; must have been the strong westerlies. They are now awaiting their mates before feeding up on sand eels and starting a new family.
