Wednesday 14th May comments: Its been a busy period for the Farne Islands as the breeding season continues to advance; we nearly have all our breeding birds now on eggs; just Kittiwakes and Arctic Terns to go! 

The sunny warm weather continues to dominate which is allowing lots of people to visit and enjoy the spectacular wildlife of the Farnes. So what are you waiting for? Get to Seahouses, get on a boat and visit the 'Galapgos of the North''ll not be disappointed. However if you visit, one top tip; bring a hat....those Arctic Terns are starting to rev up...

On the migration front, it's been quiet although a pod of Bottle-nosed Dolphins have been seen over the last few days, whilst a Bat was noted on Inner Farne (a rare sighting!)
