Wildlife sightings 8 February 2018

Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Mal

Well, Fidra is filling up with fulmars, which are providing an easy food source for two peregrines that have their nesting sight there. On the Isle of May we have had lots of older seal pups come to visit. Our best count was 16. Guillemots have been seen on Isle of May and Fidra very early. Craigleith has common gulls, fulmars and a few cormorants. Dunbar camera is back on and there have been a fair few eiders swimming around the harbour. The Camera on the Bass is still pointing at the sky looking for that very first gannet.
