Monday 17th July comments: So did you watch it? The Isle of May featured on BBC Countryfile last night and it showed the trials and tribulations of a seabird island and how weather can affect the wildlife. I’m glad to report since then conditions have calmed and the seabirds have been getting on with their daily routine of rearing young (some species are having an excellent season). We’ll bring you a full seabird roundup tomorrow.
If you’ve never visited the Isle of May before then we highly recommend a trip (although we are biased) as once you’ve paid the boat fee, its free entry to wander this spectacular National Nature Reserve for up to three hours and to see the amazing wildlife on here. For boat sailings and times see below (boats sail daily weather dependent).
Also don’t forget this week (Thursday and Friday) it’s our special Family Festival where you’ll get the chance to meet Piper the Puffin, take part in some fun challenge games, listen to storytellers and have your face painted. They’ll also be seabird art and crafts as well as plenty to keep everyone entertained. So don’t delay, book today!
