Tuesday 9th June comments: Ssssssshhhhhh ….don’t say it but summer might actually be here. A ridge of high pressure has descended over the Isle of May bringing calm conditions and bright sunshine. After the last five weeks of turbulent weather (capped by Saturday horrific storm) we might have actually turned the corner.
It’s great news for our nesting seabirds and although we did lose some nests at the weekend, the majority escaped, but only just. Hopefully the seabirds will now be able to get on with their usual business of raising young.
We are now at the height of the breeding season as we have chicks galore and parents are very active feeding hungry mouths. The team are being kept busy with population counts and various monitoring work whilst plenty of people are now visiting to enjoy the May. So if you’ve not planned your trip yet, what are you waiting for?
