Its that time of the year again when all the seabirds start to leave and we only have a handful of Guillemots left now and it very noticeable when you can only see bird poo on the rocks. It looks like the white cliffs of Dover but with the smell and this year it has been really bad at times. I keep on telling people its good for them, while I’m nearly gagging in the wheelhouse.
Judging by other years its been a very successful season and all the seabirds have done really well. Even the shags have bounced back a little bit which is really pleasing as they seemed to be hammered at the beginning of the season due to the beast from the east.
One good thing at the moment is that the Puffins, Kittiwakes, and Shags of course are still here which is great for everyone but I don’t think they will be here for long as they are starting to raft on the water, which is a sign they are getting ready to leave.
So if you are thinking of seeing a Puffin before they leave then do it sooner rather than later.
