Wildlife sightings 28 April 2016

Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Alex

There are now several gannet eggs dotted around especially below our camera. Still too early for chicks but with so many eggs there will be some great shots of chicks this season. Cormorant and shag eggs are also increasing on the islands and ‘Charlie’ and ‘Lola’ are still doing well incubating their eggs on the May.

Peregrine father and daughter are doing well on Fidra but no signs of the Bass Rock pair.

Puffins continue to come and go but with nicer weather, hopefully, on the way they will become more settled. First puffin egg on the Isle of May last week courtesy of David Steel and his blog. No activity yet on our burrow camera but fingers crossed for our returning pair.

Spaghetti, the catshark, is doing well and we now plan to relocate it to the Tidal Tank once a few adjustments are made for its safety.
