Scottish Seabird Centre

Control the interactive live cameras at the award-winning Scottish Seabird Centre, North Berwick, to zoom in on amazing wildlife in its natural habitat.

This includes the world-famous Bass Rock, the world’s largest colony of Northern gannets and BBC Countryfile Magazine’s Nature Reserve of the Year for two years running; the Isle of May National Nature Reserve, the biggest puffin colony on the east coast of Britain and also the biggest grey seal colony on the east coast of Britain.

There’s different wildlife to experience throughout the seasons – review the sightings on our blog.

The gannets return in early February and this marks a key point in breeding season within the Firth of Forth region. In peak summer around 150,000 gannets will call the Bass Rock home and around 500,000 seabirds will be present across all the islands.

The puffins return from late April and stay until early August – by then gannet chicks have grown into juveniles. From October to December the seals have their pups and you can watch them being born live on the interactive cameras in the Discovery Experience.

We are also a conservation and education charity, dedicated to inspiring people to enjoy, learn about and look after our wildlife and natural environment.
