Sightings from the Discovery Centre team – Helen
We’ve had the most wonderful displays from the cormorants today – three in a row on Craigleith – heads back, wings flapping, white patches flashing. They don’t seem to have impressed the ladies yet though. Eiders have also been displaying in the area. Charlie, the shag on the Isle of May, has extended his nest and has been sitting there regularly. Shags and fulmars cover Fidra, with a fair bit of squabbling.
The peregrines have been on Craigleith almost all day every day. Guillemots cover the stacks on the Isle of May every morning but disappear just as we unlock the doors to the public!
