Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Lee
Fidra has been in the spotlight this week with both a male peregrine and the female juvenile peregrine sighted daily. Both peregrines are usually sighted near the Fidra cliff step ledges and despite resting relatively close to each other, they lack the aggression usually seen between competition. Plenty of fulmars are now situated around Fidra as well as Craigleith with plenty of nesting sites being claimed.
Craigleith is also a hive of activity as a handful of grey seals have been sighted along with a seal pup. Along with the grey seals, there are groups of greylag geese, which are now being sighted on a regular basis.
