Wildlife sightings 28 January 2016

Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Claudia

Exiting news from the fish tank! Our little catshark is ready to hatch! It is wriggling its head from side to side to get out and starts to be very, very active. I’ll try to take as many photos as I can!

We are starting to see more shags on Craigleith. It’s great to see the camera up and running again but we can also see a lot of tree mallow. Lots of work for SOS Puffin! Please feel free to enlist to help out.

Fidra is still spoiling us with wonderful sights of fulmars. So lovely to see how the pairs groom each other. And in Dunbar we spotted a big group of eiders.

On Bass Rock we’re eagerly looking out for gannets. Even though we only have one camera running we hope to install more as soon as they come back from their winter maintenance. Gannets have been spotted apparently in North East Scotland, so keep your eyes peeled!
