Tuesday 8th March comments: The countdown is on as in less than three weeks the Isle of May will open its doors as thousands of seabirds will return to nest whilst tourists will enjoy the wildlife spectacular.
Make a note in your diary; Saturday 26th March is when we’ll open and weather permitting will remain open throughout the spring and summer eventually closing on 2nd October.
