17.19 long walk out to the flat low some of an island. Lot of black backed gulls very agitated. Unsurprising as I came across separately two little fluffy grey with black spots chicks.vegibagger08/06/2019
From end of the public road. Symbister first. This hill completes the East Burra tumps.jonglew07/06/2019
Tussock; tumulus 90m NE slightly lower. Greater black-backs not at all happy; saw me photographing their chicks and wanting royalties perhaps. The two southern tumps - my final East Burra tump.RHW24/06/2016
