Wildlife sightings 22 February 2018

Notes from the Discovery Centre team – Mal & Erin


Fidra is still the best island for variety of species on camera. We again are at a standoff between a pair of fulmars and a peregrine. There are also a few razorbills being spotted at the other side of the island.

The peregrine has also been spotted on Craigleith, however due to the rapid growth of tree mallow can be difficult to see at times. There are also lots of shags with their tufts up, amongst the growing numbers of cormorants in the area.

The gannets have still not landed, but the camera is primed and so are the telescopes, so hopefully soon.
