Well the puffins are still here which is great as they seem to leave when the school holidays start so at least the kids get to see them. I think it was about the 27th July last year that they left so i just hope they stay a little longer.

The weather has not been to bad over the last few weeks, so fingers crossed it keeps up.

Over the last 2 weeks we have been keeping our eyes open for the odd bird or two which you don’t really see very often. About a week ago we saw 2 Guillemots on a ledge on the south of Staple Island. We were a little shocked as all the Guillemots have left a long time ago.  As we have watched them day after day we noticed that their was a chick below the mother. On the morning of 4th Aug we noticed that the last Guillemot family had finally gone.
