An Island Blog
Many thousands of people living either side of the Firth of Forth can see the Isle of May every day when they open their curtains each morning. Millions other know of this island because of the amazing bird life, or from boating in the area or through knowledge of lighhouses or from making a Christian pilgrimage. Of these people about 9000 visit the island each year to experience a snapshot of what is happening on the island. But at the most they only visit the island once a year and most never visit. So the aim of this blog is to show those who can't visit but who are interested a little of how the island changes through the seasons, the comings and goings of the birds and seals and the constantly changing little community of people who work and stay on the island. Feel free to comment.
