Wednesday 26th July comments: Its not all about seabirds, rare arrivals and football! The Isle of May NNR is a fantastic place for wildlife and a visit can bring you anything… yesterday visitors were treated to a spectacular sighting of Bottle-nosed Dolphins approaching the boat and leaping alongside (as shown in the wonderful photos above taken by May Princess crew member Ed Thomson).
This season has seen some great Dolphin action off the boat in the waters surrounding the May and with the best months approaching for whales and dolphins (August-September) what else might we see. With Humpback Whales and Killer Whales seen in recent years, you just never know!
Boats sail daily until 1st October to the Isle of May departing from Anstruther and North Berwick. For full sailing details check out the websites of the various boat companies. Until then, enjoy the photos. (Also of note, the Two-barred Crossbill is still present for its third day!)
