5th November 2014 Guillemots on ledges at Jenny's Cove but no count this morning. No Fulmars.

No counts this morning, my main purpose was to test a combination of video camera and telescope. Using a 1300mm focal length telescope should give effective magnification of 200x. Ideally, I would like to use this combination in breeding season to read leg rings. For now, it allows me to record the autumn moult.
