Summer time

Made it; fledged Shag chick

Friday 10th August comments: Its been a stunning week on the Farnes as we've had the weather we only dreamt about a few months ago. The season will long be remembered for its total wash-out, with heavy rain throughout causing problems. However its all change (typical, just after the seabirds have gone) but at least we are experiencing some form of summer.

Lots of birds have fledged but the Farnes still offer plenty, with the tranquil Inner Farne beach now open and some great things to see including our aquarium with various interesting sea critters on show including lobster (and no, we don't eat them!). The forecast suggests more good weather, so bring it on and come out and visit, you'll not be disappointed.
