Wildlife sightings 1 February 2018

 

Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Mal

Well, the battle between the fulmars and the peregrine is over, and the winner is…… the peregrine. It is back to its normal nesting site on Fidra. More fulmars are also on Fidra and the shags are less abundant. On the Isle of May our late seal pup is getting bigger every day and a few older pups have also been seen, probably for a rest due to the recent stormy weather.

On Craigleith there seems to be an increase of gulls along with the shags. We think that, since local fishing boats have been in the area, there might be easy pickings for the birds. The Bass has had very few sightings just the occasional gull – hopefully we will see gannets soon!
