Fidra camera

The cormorants have started nest-building on Craigleith. Their breeding plumage – white patches on their flanks – is clearly visible on camera and by telescope. The shags are busy on Fidra and the Isle of May settling down on their nests – Charlie is back at his usual site but with a new mate, not ringed unfortunately so we won’t be able to recognise her.

Fulmars, gulls and eider ducks are everywhere. The male and female peregrines sat together for hours on Craigleith, while their daughter has been on Fidra.
