Wildlife sightings 18 June 2015

Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Fran

This has been a steady week on the cameras, with no new ‘firsts’ but increasing numbers of chicks – particularly gannets and guillemots. Lots of fresh seaweed is being brought in to the Bass Rock for nesting material.

We still haven’t actually recorded a razorbill chick yet, but suspect there are some. The same goes for fulmar eggs, although the birds can be seen sitting tight. The Dunbar Harbour camera is still out of action so we’re not able to follow the kittiwakes at the moment. More puffins have been seen with sandeels.
