Puffin and Gannet cams up and running in Alderney

Alderney Wildlife Trust's bird cams are up and running for the breeding season.

Puffin cams have been placed on Burhou Island and, for the first time, there are cameras watching the breeding Gannets on Les Etacs.

There are approximately 100 breeding pairs of Puffin off Alderney, making it the biggest colony of Atlantic Puffin in the Channel Islands.

In addition, there are 6,000 pairs of gannet courting, breeding and feeding off the island.

High definition video will be streamed in real time 24 hours a day until the end of the Northern Gannet breeding season here.

There are very few webcams covering such large seabird colonies, and GannetCam will be the most southerly.
