Bluebells on Skomer Island

Skomer Island is now coming into its best with a fantastic display of bluebells coming through. There is the best display of sea campion on the cliff slopes above South Haven on the way to High Cliff I have ever seen. It has been confirmed that the puffins have now started to lay eggs so adults will be coming in with sandeels in around 3 weeks time at the beginning of June. The guillemots starting laying eggs on the ledges in April so this is regarded as being an early season for them. There is a whole mass of them on the ledges at the landing with great interaction between them.
