Steve shared his considerable knowledge throughout the day as we learned about the seabirds and other birds found in the area. We had close-up views of the cliff birds including puffins, kittiwakes, gannets, fulmars and ended the day watching stock doves and a short-eared owl. Steve knows where and when to go to provide an interesting and rewarding day. and I highly recommend his trips.
