Rise and Shine!

Fulmars back...

Grey Seals galore

Migrant Seals in 'stick'?

Cliff tops remain empty

Mid-winter buildings closed.

Wednesday 19th February comments: Its been a while but slowly and surely the Farne Islands is wakening from its winter slumber. The team will soon return, the seabirds will follow and the daily visitors will enjoy. It’s nearly that time of year again; Farnes season!

It’s been a quiet spell over the last few weeks although a couple of visits have ensured that all is well on the islands. The cliffs remain bare, but with displaying Eiders, Shags in breeding plumage and Fulmars wheeling above the islands, it starting to feel like spring.

Over the next week or two, I’ll be bringing you all the winter news from the islands; from welcoming new staff to saying goodbye to old friends. Watch this space, the blog is alive…
