Wildlife sightings 12 November 2015

Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Lee

Isle of May and Craigleith are teeming with life with plenty of pups still arriving. Most of the grey seal pups are coming along great and they seem very playful with both each other and the cows. We have noticed that quite a few cows are feeding several pups at once on the Isle of May with a handful of bulls near the shallows.

Fidra has also become quite popular recently due to the more common sightings of peregrine falcons and shags, with eider ducks not far behind them around the island.

A grey heron has recently been spotted on a number of occasions both resting and flying close to the water’s surface.
