Wildlife sightings 25 February 2016

Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Claudia

This week we are still waiting for the gannets to land. They are circling the Bass Rock but as they normally arrive first on the north side we don’t see them on camera. However, we definitively see an increase in numbers flying around! We see the peregrines nearly every day together with a multitude of herring gulls on Fidra. In Dunbar Harbour we spotted Sammy the Seal and are looking forward many more sightings over the season.
Finally the cameras on the Isle of May are now working and what a lovely sight: dozens of guillemots are on the cliffs in the morning!
