We had a lovely afternoon visiting Sumburgh Head. We used our new binoculars and bird book and went to see what birds were there.
We saw lots of guillemots back on the rocks in their colonies, and lots of maalies (fulmars), some gannets and kittiwakes and a small flock of twite, feeding outside the RSPB office. It was a beautiful afternoon and we could hear all the seabirds calling away.
The Eco Committee has sent letters to several businesses in Shetland to get sponsorship or help with developing our wildlife projects. Fiona, Victoria and Molly sent a letter last week to Ness Engineering, asking for help towards buying some binoculars, so that we can have a class set. We were really pleased and surprised today to receive two pairs of binoculars – thank you very much for your generosity, they will be well used.
