Wildlife sightings 21 April 2016

Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Helen

It’s really spring here on camera! We saw our first gannet egg last Friday but it seems to have disappeared, so we’re looking out for more. Our Isle of May shags, Charlie and Lola, are still incubating three eggs. Herring gulls, Islay and Jura, on Craigleith are on their nest, but no eggs yet. Puffins are coming and going, but lots here today, and we now have our puffin burrow camera installed awaiting new arrivals! Eider ducks are everywhere so we expect to see the females nesting soon.

In the tank the catshark is gradually growing, although it’s not very active. We also have a spider crab in too.
