Hungry mouths need feeding...Puffins with Sand-eels

You never see them (they remain underground) but this is a two week old Puffin chick!

Sunday 31st May comments: The dust is starting to settle after the spectacular sight of six Killer Whales off the May on Thursday as life starts to return to normal (as normal as life living on one of the greatest seabird colonies in the UK can be). However our whale sightings did continue as we had our first Minke Whale of the summer on Saturday.

The seabirds continue to progress their breeding season with most birds now feeding hungry chicks and the month of June is arguably the best month to visit as the place is a bee-hive of activity. However it all depends on the weather…

The month of April was stunning with bright sunshine and flat seas but the month of May has been in complete contrast as we’ve had our fair share of gales, low temperatures and rain over the past four weeks. We are hoping (just like everywhere else) that the summer will finally begin and calmer weather will dominate (please). Fingers crossed for the next four weeks…
