Tuesday 18th August comments:  The Isle of May is an amazing place for wildlife at all times of the year. The spring and summer are dominated by our breeding seabirds whilst the autumn months witness thousands of Grey Seals giving birth across the island.

However at this time of year, small migrant passerines are heading to southern wintering grounds and are stopping over on the island to feed up before continuing their journey. The weekend saw a good number of arrivals and if you’re visiting the special isle, keep your eyes open as you’ll be amazed at what you can see!
