Tuesday 9th January comments: Its the new year and the new Isle of May NNR season is fast approaching. In less than three months time we’ll be opening our doors to thousands of seabirds, plenty of visitors and some wonderful wildlife experiences.
We’re hoping its going to be a good summer for everyone and everything concerned and with free entry to the island and the impressive Stevenson Lighthouse, what excuse do you have not to visit? The island opens its doors on 31st March-30th September and during that period over 40,000 pairs of Puffins will return to breed alongside thousands of Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Razorbills and Shags (amongst others).
This year we also are celebrating the Year of Young People, so will be basing events around that theme as well as opening the Stevenson lighthouse to the public. They’ll be plenty to see and do on the island throughout the summer months, but don’t worry if you can’t make it, you can always follow the blog which will bring you all the news and views from the magical isle.
