Gannets Boreray

The view many of our day trip visitors see on their way back to Lewis and Harris. Thanks to SeaTrek for this image. We recently had a licenced aerial survey carried out over Boreray to ascertain the breeding population. Breeding success data may indicate the richness or otherwise of local fish stocks.

At a quantitative level, an Irish marine survey vessel Celtic Explorer was in the area last week censusing the Mackerel population around Boreray.
