Its slowly getting busy.

After all the strong west winds we have had over the last week or so, things seem to be getting a little bit more settled. The birds are still coming and going, and lots more are still to come, but some of the Guillemots, Kittiwakes, Razorbills and Puffins seem to be settling down now.

We have a few Shags on eggs now and 5 swallows were seen at The Inner Farne today.

As we landed our customers on The Inner Farne this afternoon i counted the Sandwich Terns on Knocks Reef and its up to 71 now. Just 2 days ago it was 39 so things are on the up.

A single Wheater flew past and landed on the island for a little while and then off again.

We have also got new signs for the Booking Office down the harbour so I'm pleased with those.



A pair of Razorbills on the cliff at The Inner Farne.


Guillemots on the south side of Staple Island today.

Sorry, but i feel like a little boy in a sweet shop. I get to see this every year and i still get a buzz.

We have some fantastic trips coming up over the year so don't miss out. 

Water, Wildlife and Walking on the 22nd of April and there is only a few places left.
