Supermarket Special Offers

Although there were plenty of birds on their normal supermarket shelves, there were some differences from the last visit a few weeks ago. There were many more Puffins to see - we probably saw more than 50, and several of these were sitting at the top of the cliffs for the first time. We also had some flying around our heads, which has never happened to us at this location before. There were fewer Guillemots, so presumably their young have already left their ledges, so there is no need for the adults to remain. So, if you want to catch up with the birds of rocky cliffs, now is the time to do so, as in a fortnight's time most of the Puffins, Guillemots and Razorbills will have left!
