Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

Guille­mots and Ra­zor­bills greet you from the cliffs above the land­ing, while the colonies on the op­po­site side of North Haven draw your at­ten­tion by their trum­pet­ing calls. Puffins nest in the slopes.

1Guille­mots packed close on the ledges, Ra­zor­bills more scat­tered while lower down, Kit­ti­wakes nest.

2 3The most spec­tac­u­lar of all the cliffs, the great chasm of The Wick. See nest­ing Ful­mars while Puffins oc­cupy bur­rows all around you.

At low tide, Grey Seals haul out on the rocks, while Gan­nets, their colony on Grassholm nor­mally clearly vis­i­ble to the west, fish in the tide race.

4Spare some time, the val­ley is the nest­ing area of Curlews and Short-eared Owls.
