Wildlife sightings 23 March 2017

What’s on the Seabird Centre cameras from the Discovery Centre team – Alex

230317 la bass rock

The gannets are back! There are still lots of gannets to return, however, there is a lot of courtship behaviour to be seen on the cameras such as beak fencing and bowing (territorial).

The peregrines continue to be spotted on Fidra and Craigleith but no sightings of the peregrines on the Bass as of yet. Fulmars, cormorants and shags continue with their own nest preparations especially on the Isle of May. The ringed shags have been very busy arguing with some pair swapping and intruders on ‘Charlie’s’ nest this past week.

Guillemots and a few razorbills are becoming more established on some of the other islands such as Fidra and Craigleith, while the main stack on the Isle of May is full!
