Puffins Return

Friday 17th March comments: Today was a noteworthy day in the Isle of May calendar as thousands of Puffins arrived in the seas surrounding the island. The birds, looking in good condition in full summer plumage, were present but were not on land – that will hopefully happen next week.

Regardless its great to see so many back and the calm conditions (mild weather) has encouraged there return. Puffins breed on the island from April-August and we are all looking forward to opening the island on 1st April so we can share this wonderful place.
