Wildlife sightings 13 August 2015

Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Liz

Seals have been seen regularly on our cameras over the last few days alongside many juvenile shags frequently preening and drying their wings on the rocks around the islands. Meanwhile the young female peregrine continues to be seen regularly on Fidra cliff.

Two guga were rescued from near the Bass Rock lighthouse on Wednesday during a visit by a camera crew. It seems they had wandered from their nests. The chicks were still quite young with lots of white down and after a brief visit to the Seabird Centre they are now in the care of the SSPCA and should be released later in the year.
