I've been trying to get video of my Guillemot provisioning ledge from a distance with a telescope attached to the video camera. At this time of year the birds are too unsettled to allow me to visit as close as I do in the summer. I'm having to video from further away with a longer focal length ~650mm rather than ~200mm to ~300mm. So I need calmer weather to capture video. Unfortunately, this may not be the best conditions for birds to be attending my survey ledges.
After this gales, it looks like there may be a weather window tomorrow morning. I probably won't be able to get any video, but there should be a chance of seeing a Puffin if there are any around.
