Humpback Whale!

Wednesday 10th May comments: The Isle of May never disappoints! This morning a Humpback Whale was spotted from the mainland and later in the day, our reserve manager was returning to the island and was lucky to spot the impressive beast!

Humpback Whales are rare off the Isle of May, this was only the third in nine years although records are increasing in the Firth of Forth. Regardless it was still impressive to see such a mighty animal around the island and we hope it will stick around for a while to allow people to enjoy the great sight. The Humpback appeared settled and was feeding in large circles off the north end of the island, between the Isle of May and Crail.

So if you are visiting, keep your eyes peeled as you never know what you may see as the wildlife around the Isle of May is spectacular and surprising. Lets see what else we can discovered.
