Fulmar Eggs

Welcome to egg club: Fulmars now on eggs

Stunning Black Redstart remains
A giant Swift - our first of the year

Summer is here!
 Thursday 16th May comments: What a difference a day makes. Yesterdays gales and driving rain were almost forgotten as the Farnes bathed in glorious sunshine and flat seas, which was much appreciated by everyone connected with the islands. A few migrant birds lingered including a stunning Black Redstart (which showed well alongside a male Redstart) and out first Swift of the year; summer is on its way.

Our breeding seabirds enjoyed the weather change and so much so, we discovered out first Fulmar eggs. We now just need Kittiwakes to join the 'egg club' and then our season will be going places. It's been a busy week and its only going to get busier as the Farnes and its Puffins are about to hit the big screen...but more of that tomorrow. We've got a long day ahead tomorrow so an early night have been warned.
