Perfect weather for a Grassholm trip and we still have a few spaces on our 9.00 tomorrow morning.  We have been having amazing dolphin sightings out there the last couple of weeks and on our last trip we saw common and Rissos dolphin.  Get in touch if you fancy joining us. #commondolphin #rissos #findyourepic

As ravens have featured in one of our most recent storytelling trips they are next on the list for collective nouns.  An unkindness or a conspiracy of Ravens. They have a very acrobatic flight and we often see them inverting to fly upside down, beautiful to watch.  They are a serious predator for our visiting sea birds such as the auks and like all the corvid family ravens are intelligent. An interesting fact about ravens, they will take more eggs than they can eat in the breeding season and hide them for leaner times like squirrels. Also legends suggest that the original ravens in the Tower of London came Ramsey.

Thanks to Rob Davies for the pictures.

We are just starting to see the first of the seal pups being born on Ramsey though it is still quite early for pups. The bachelor pad is also pretty busy now. This is where all the non breeders get to hang out. Here are a couple of youngsters checking out our passengers.

Sorry for the current obsession with collective nouns for our wildlife but it is keeping Ffion entertained!  This is definitely a good one, an improbability of shearwaters, Pembrokeshire is home to over half the world's populations of Manx shearwaters and our best shearwater fact is:
The oldest recorded manx shearwater was ringed in 1957, still alive and 51 years old in 2008 and ornithologist Chris Mead calculated it had covered 5 million miles in its lifetime.  We are still running our evening shearwater trips if you would like to see one of Pembrokeshire's most amazing wildlife spectacle and learn more about these  amazing birds.
