Wildlife sightings 14 April 2016

Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Helen

Our lovely shag pair on the Isle of May, Charlie and Lola, have three eggs. They are right in front of the camera so we’re looking forward to watching their family grow up. Cormorants also have eggs, and this time last year we saw our first gannet egg, so we’re keeping our eyes peeled.

Islay and Jura, our herring gulls, are still nest building on Craigleith, using everything to hand including tree mallow and bottle tops. The puffins are still not settled – we’ve lots one day and none the next! Kittiwakes, fulmars, razorbills and guillemots are all in evidence too.
