earlier today I posted a few pictures from the Isle of May trip http://www.wbist.com/archives/2899, but a friend on twitter @RoseCottageFife wrote a much more in depth and informative piece about here trip to the Isle of May here: http://rosecottageeastneuk.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/the-jewel-of-forth-nature-lover-day.html and there’s the Isle of May Blog from 15th of May announcing they do have puffins: http://isleofmaynnr.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/yes-we-do-have-puffins.html – I would love to spend time out there as a scientist or conservationist, only problem is I have no degree in either!!! Silly me for pursuing computers and photography… Maybe they need a professional photographer!? Would love that, I’ll bring my own food!
My bird list today, there’s 2 lists as I went to Gardening Scotland and managed a few sightings there:
- Blackbird x 1 – singing very very early! My wife has started putting earplugs next to the bed so that when they start at 3.30am she can dull the sound a bit.
- Blue Tit x 2 – going into nest box
- Carrion crow x 4
- Coal Tit x 1
- Dunnock x 3
- Jackdaw x 2
- Magpie x 1
- Woodpigeon x 2
At Gardening Scotland:
- Swallows – a few nests around the buildings there.
These are the photos to go with the Isle of May post from the 29th of May: http://www.wbist.com/archives/2804 hope they give you a bit of an idea to what the trip was like:
