Isle of May: A Tapestry of Wildlife and Wind from the National Nature Reserve, my wildlife visits to view bird species on the island. Dawn breaks, casting a golden glow on cliffs teeming with puffins, their clownish faces aglow with anticipation. Guillemots streak through turquoise waters, diving like feathered darts for breakfast beneath a watchful kittiwake colony. Grey seals bask on sun-warmed rocks, pups bleating playfully amidst the salty chorus of the seabird city. Wildflowers paint the meadows, a carpet of purple heather and yellow sea campion contrasting with the emerald hills. The weathered face of an old lighthouse watches over the scene, a silent sentinel of countless island stories. Wind whispers through rugged grasses, carrying the scent of kelp and the freedom of this untamed sanctuary. As dusk paints the sky in fiery hues, puffins return with beaks bulging, tiny chicks jostling for a share of the day's bounty.

A tapestry woven with wind, waves, and the vibrant pulse of life, the Isle of May whispers its secrets to the attentive soul.
