It's been a while since we last spoke, so I wanted to say hi to all our loyal readers and keep you updated with sightings on the reserve. We first spotted our Guillemots back on 27th December and since then they have been in and out to sea quite frequently! They have been busy prospecting their nesting sites making sure no other Guillemots are moving in on their patch! A few Razorbills have been bobbing around on the sea but are yet to move up onto the rocks. Perhaps the most exciting sighting (particuarly for me as I am very fond of them!) was 11 Fulmar's relaxing on the rocks on the cliffs. How exciting!? I do hope we have lots of big fat Fulmar chicks this year.
In other news, our Chough have been VERY vocal outside the Visitor Centre recently and Mr and Mrs Mousetrap, stars of our CCTV Chough nest, have been displaying rather fantastically all over the reserve! The cronking Ravens have been busy collecting nesting material so we will be keeping you updated on news there!
We hope to see you at South Stack soon! Why not pop up this half term? We have a wildsquare treasure hunt for families and some lovely home made produce in the cafe and great gifts in the shop for those of you wanting a more relaxed environment.
