Wildlife sightings 8 February 2013

Sightings from Neil in the Discovery Centre

This week has turned out to be peregrine week! Spotted daily on both Bass and Fidra cams. Pair spotted on Fidra lighthouse for an hour or so on Thursday morning.

Fulmars have been spotted on Fidra and the Isle of May. Not in huge numbers and not settling yet.

Buzzard spotted on the top of the stack on Isle of May (Thursday). Did not stay too long.

On Thursday there were 4 turnstones spotted huddled together trying to get some shelter from the wind on the lower stack on Isle of May.

Started spotting some gannets on the Bass cameras and at the Scope Deck. Not in huge numbers, only sporadically not daily and not landing – yet!

Young seals have been visiting Pilgrims’ Haven throughout the week, having a little snoop about and retreating back to the water. They do not appear to stay for long periods of time.
