BBC Depart

Sunday 8th November comments: It was almost three weeks but at long last the BBC Autumnwatch team have departed the Isle of May. The team have lived and worked alongside us (socially distancing of course) bringing you all the sights and sounds of the active Grey Seal colonies on the island. Its been a brilliant time watching the live stream, the evening highlights and everything that has gone on behind the scenes.

Over the three weeks the BBC team have learnt a lot about island living, from the unpredictability of it all (which included a power cut just before going live) to the weather of a Scottish Island. However its all over and having packed the team departed for their next adventures. Like many across the nation, they won’t forget the Isle of May. As for us, we are now slowly sorting kit and equipment as we will be departing ourselves for the winter to leave the Isle of May for its winter slumber (it needs a well earned rest).

However we are not finished yet! We’ve still got plenty of Grey Seal news and action to report (more on tomorrows blog) whilst the tail end of the bird migration season has been bringing a few surprises which we’ll report on soon. So stay with us, keep checking the blog as we head into peak Seal pupping time…
