Alderney Wildlife Trust Puffin Cams

The Alderney Puffins


Burhou is a small island just 2.3 km northwest of Alderney. It is part of the Channel Islands located close to the coastline of France. No humans live on the island of Burhou but it is home to many thousands of gulls all year round and to a colony of 200 plus Atlantic Puffins between April and July.

The colony of Atlantic Puffins will spend most of their year out at sea but they return to the island of Burhou every spring for 3 months to breed and raise their young. On the island they will live in old disused rabbit burrows and it there that the chick will be born. Puffin chicks are called “Pufflings” and each pair of adults will raise one chick each year. Following the 12 weeks on dry land the adults with their Puffling chick will return to the sea, and it is there where they will stay until the breeding season starts again the following April.

An amazing story! You will in 2019 on the See Nature website be able to view daily life in the Puffin Colony and over the next 10 weeks read and learn about these incredible and wonderful sea birds.

Perfect Pollinators - Red Mason Bee Project

“Perfect Pollinators” Red Mason Bee Project

Our native bee population is in decline. Help farmers and producers to address this trend by adding to native bee stocks. Red Mason bees are solitary bees that unlike bumble and honey bees do not sting and therefore do not possess a threat to young children.

Fit a webcam Red Mason Bee Box on an outer school wall and watch between March and July live video of the female Red Mason Bee lining her nest and laying eggs that will grow and pupate before hatching the following spring.

Each female Red Mason bee will lay in a year up to 40 eggs. So play your part in this campaign and donate your excess bee stock to local fruit and vegetable famers.
