Wednesday 10th February comments: The last seven days have produced some challenging conditions for our seabird as strong easterly winds have produced heavy seas and low temperatures. To add to that, yesterday we’ve had a good dusting of snow on the Isle of May, a rare event which last occurred during the ‘beast from the east’ in March 2018.
The photos above were taken by wildlife cameraman Sam Oakes yesterday from the adjacent mainland of Fife. Although it is distant, you can see the snow topped cliffs of the island making it stunning in the afternoon sun. Although it is beautiful, we hope the weather does ease soon to afford seabirds some rest bite in these challenging conditions. As always, we’ll keep you posted.
