A Kittiwake flies past with some grass in its beak. It looks like its nest needs reinforcements:
They sometimes carry so much it’s hard to believe they can see where they’re flying:

I can see one flying below with some nesting material:
It’s a piece of fishing rope.
Then I realise why all the Gannet nests below have a bluish colour. They’re all sitting on piles of discarded fishing nets. How disgusting is that?
Even the Puffins are getting in on the act, but this bird aims to keep its rock crevice nice and fresh with this green frond:
Anything to keep that precious egg from breaking or rolling.
