Alcid Indigestion

Not what you want when you have to return to work on a Friday after Christmas is a Brünnich’s Guillemot to be showing well on Boxing Day in Portland Harbour. What you also don’t want is to have to turn down a lift knowing that if you can go at all it might be Sunday before you stand a chance. I’ve got form with rare Alcids. I dipped out on the Long-billed Murrelet at Dawlish by leaving it too late. I also blew the chance of seeing the Bressay Ferry Brünnich’s by waiting too long, at least I didn’t waste money on that.

Best thing you can hope for is that the birds quickly feel embarrassed at being so soft and head back to the frozen North… no? Oh bugger!
