We have eggs

We have eggs on the island. First nest to be found (not counting the feral pigeons that seem to push them out all year round) was a greater black-backed gull out on Rona. Not often that they get even a mention let alone a first. Lovely looking eggs.
And now a shag nest - the first of a very late season - found to have 3 eggs making the first laying date similar to the greater blacked backed. Hopefully this is the start of an avalanche of eggs.
