Over half the world’s population of Manx shearwaters breed on the Pembrokeshire Islands, that is around 360,000 breeding pairs and the UK is home to 90% of the entire world population of Manxies. Watching them fly back to their burrows in their thousands of an evening is nothing short of magical. Whilst clumsy on land the shearwater is is the epitome of grace in the air. They use what is know as the ground effect, riding the updrafts off the waves which results in a very low energy flight. To find out more about these fascinating birds join us for an evening shearwater trip. The perfect end to the perfect day in Pembrokeshire. #manxshearwater #visitwales #visitpembrokeshire #findyourepic

Greg Morgan, thanks for the following update on Ramsey’s Manx Shearwaters that’s really exciting. (Maybe I need to get out more) ‘Welcome home EB52672 and EB52673. After 7 months apart, travelling to and from the coast of Argentina, this pair of Manx shearwaters are back in the exact same nest box as 2016 – they were first time breeders last year and successfully raised a chick. Fingers crossed for another good year!’

Today Ffion and Pete had a change of scene and took part in a wildlife training event on Skomer Island, thanks to Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum, Skomer Island and Skomer Marine Nature Reserve for a lovely and informative day. It was great to put some faces to names and to explore parts of Skomer not normally open to the public and hear about some of the research taking place there both above and below water. Great to see all the birds back in, they are early this year and as one would expect the puffins stole the show! Looking forward to getting the boat on the water later this week.

Hiss and Ketchup, the pointer! Love this photo, it was all part of acclimatising her to her surroundings! The peregrine rather than the pointer! Before I took her on, I had no idea there was so much involved in falconry. All the trickier as she was a fully wild bird.

This morning this photo popped up on my feed and reminded me of my journey with Hiss the Falcon, it was the first time she flew any distance to my fist. It was such an amazing experience to train a wild peregrine and I can’t help but wonder where she is now! If you want to know more about the story that inspired the naming of the company, check out the link below.
