Wednesday 22nd June comments: Its been another busy period as our thoughts are still on avian influenza as we hear of seabirds and seabird colonies which are suffering. At present the Isle of May remains clear of the disease but we will keep you posted as things can change and develop quickly.
At present the seabird breeding season is at its peak and its great to see so many youngsters of all species hatching across the island. When the island has so many young that means the adults are busy foraging for food so its a very active island. We have even seen our first departures, but more on that tomorrow as the season continues.
So plenty going on and plenty happening but we’ll keep you posted of all the news and views from the island as it happens. Stay tuned.
