Fans Puffin

Monday 23rd June comments: Another day on Planet Farnes and another good day for all concerned. The resident seabirds are full of activity and things are going well. Guillemots and Razorbills are already starting to leave the cliffs with young (success!) whilst Puffin chicks grow stronger by the day.

Elsewhere Arctic Tern chicks are hatching across the colonies, whilst both Sandwich and Common tern chicks are being well fed. It’s great to see so much food being brought in and its all pointing towards a great season, but we’ve still got some way to go, so we wont shout to loudly…just yet.
For those interested, the Bridled Tern performed well all day and continues to display to Sandwich Terns. Could it hybridise with a Sandwich Tern? Could it really? Watch this space…
