What can be seen on camera from the Discovery Centre team – Helen
Eggs abound! We spotted our first gannet eggs this week! We already have cormorant and shag eggs on camera. Puffins have been around a fair bit and we’ve seen activity in the puffin burrow on the ‘burrowcam’. Some new shags have moved in on the Isle of May cliff so it’s getting quite busy there. As many are ringed, we get to recognise them easily. As well as Charlie and Lola we saw last year, we also have Sid and Nancy, Burton and Taylor – new birds nesting for the first time – and the ‘des res’ nest in the cave, occupied again after a few years of being empty. We have wonderful views of razorbills just below the cameras on Craigleith, guillemots cover the stacks on the Isle of May. Hundreds of eiders have been bobbing around near Craigleith, and a few seals were spotted chilling out, too.
