Hard Hat

Well it's Hard Hat time as those Arctic Terns are now starting to dive bomb. They have lots of eggs spread all over the walk way as you head up to the top of the island.
If anyone is going to the islands over the next month or two please be careful were you put your feet as we don't want any eggs or chicks stood on.
We have nearly every bird on eggs now so it will not be long before every bird will have chicks.

I was also seen Oystercatcher Eggs and Ringed Plover Egg.

We have also got our first Eider Duck chicks in the harbour. We did have a good few more but those Gulls got them.
