As the title states things generally never turn out as hoped, do they ? With NW'rly winds forecast decided to head up to Eshaness on Saturday am and chance my arm with some seawatching. When i arrived the wind was very obviously blowing WSW'rly, 'ah well it may change' i thought. Wrong. I gave it a couple of tedious hours then headed home with 1 Manx Shearwater and 2 Storm Petrels for my efforts. When home i cleared all the old roof from the garden then had a look at patch, nowt. Maybe Sunday (today) would be better ? Nope. So decided to spend 30 minutes down at the voe below the house watching Gannets plunge diving and generally showing well a few feet off shore. That's about as good as it got.
