Impressive west cliffs of the Isle of May

Impressive west cliffs of the Isle of May

Wednesday 11th March comments:  The weather has eventually allowed us to cross the sea and visit the May to continue our pre-season preparations. Despite the strong winds of recent the buildings are in good condition and storm damage is minimal. However down on the beach (known as Pilgrim’s Haven) an interesting object has washed ashore.

The Firth of Forth has seen some momentous bridge building in its time and next year the latest of the suspension bridges will open. As part of this impressive feat of engineering, large buoys have been tethered to protect against shipping. Except they are now missing one…

The four ton monster is safely wedged up on the beach on the Isle of May and will be recovered in the near future but until then, it just adds interesting viewing for the local Shag and Gull population. Speaking of which some breaking seabird news…but all will be revealed tomorrow!
