Auks Galore

Puffins back in good numbers

Looking at you, looking at me; Razorbill pair

Guillemot pair

Guillemots galore

Wednesday 26th March comments: It’s still all go on the Farnes as the team continue to prepare for our grand opening whilst the seabirds are still performing well. The weather has very much changed as an easterly weather front is now dominating dropping the temperatures and stirring the sea; it’s rough and we’re now cut off.

On the bird front, plenty of seabirds are present with thousand of Puffins, Guillemots and Razorbills. Shags remain on well built nests (the first egg won’t be far away!) whilst Kittiwakes are attending nest sites on the cliff sides. Migration remains slow although the first Chiffchaff has arrived alongside several Goldcrest.

We are now just six days away from opening our doors to the public; are you visiting?
