|Not one but thousands|
|Three months and counting|
Welcome to 2014. Are you ready? Here we go again…
In just under three months we’ll be opening our doors and welcoming visitors to the Farne Islands as we open our jetties on Tuesday 1st April. Throughout the month of April, Inner Farne will be open all day (Staple Island opens on 1st May) and we’ll be welcoming back our seabirds including thousands of Puffins, Guillemot and Razorbills.
April is a great time to visit as this early period will see lots of courtship displays and with very little vegetation growing, it’s a good chance to see the Puffins really well! Also our Terns will be winging their way back from the southern hemisphere wintering grounds and by mid-April, we should have plenty of Sandwich with a few Arctic Terns present (I’m glad to report; the Arctic Terns won’t be attacking by then so no need for hats!).
So are you with us this year? If I advice you to do one thing this summer; it’s visit the Farne Islands, you won’t be disappointed!
