Going, going...

Last of our Puffins

Almost all gone

The last fledgling Arctic Tern nearly ready to depart

Final few Guillemots ready to jump

Saturday 2nd August comments: So welcome to August and its all change. Over the next few weeks, the last of our seabirds will depart for the open sea and that is mission accomplished. breeding season over for another year (sad I know!). In general its appears to have been a cracking breeding season with plenty of chicks fledging, but we'll have a few numbers to crunch before then to confirm just how good it has been.

Over the next few weeks, I'll bring you the highlights of the season with the good (and bad) news for our breeding seabirds because before we know it, we'll have pupping Grey Seals on the islands. Then the fun will really begin...
