Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Lee
All islands are buzzing with activity this week with plenty of new chicks arriving. The Bass Rock is now stocked with newly hatched gannet chicks and now only a few eggs remain. Fidra, Craigleith and the May are awash with puffins, some of which can be seen carrying a steady flow of sand eels to their burrows. The male peregrine has also been a common sight throughout this week occasionally moving from ledge to ledge around Fidra cliff and the local razorbill along with its chick has seemingly disappeared.
