Wildlife sightings 7 January 2016

Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Claudia

So far this year we have seen fulmars, peregrines and even some greylag geese.

The stormy weather brought a lot of sea foam to the beach and we had some spectacular high waves crushing onto the harbour wall. We do expect some injured and dead birds this time of year and on Monday we had an injured guillemot brought to the Centre. Unfortunately we had also a dead kestrel brought in by Helen. It has been reported and will be picked up by the rangers of the SOC. We do brace ourselves, however, for a wreck of shags and possibly there are even some little auks to be found. As usual, any injured bird we will report to the SSPCA and we keep them to be picked up. It is also important to note any rings/Darvics.
