Wildlife sightings 7 April 2016

Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Helen

Big news – we have eggs! Or rather the cormorants on Craigleith and the shags on Craigleith and Isle of May have eggs. Gannets numbers have risen so looking pretty much at full strength now. Lots of wonderful territorial and courtship behaviour. Kittiwakes, guillemots, razorbills and fulmars are all here. The puffins are continuing to keep us on our toes – here one minute and gone the next! And in the fish tank, we’re still waiting for the mermaid’s purse to hatch.
