Waves breaking over the Ortac Northern Gannetry, birds can still be seen on nest
Nestling at the northern most tip of the Bay Normand-Breton, exposed to the Atlantic Ocean to the west and suffering the winds funnelling down the English Channel, Alderney, like all islands, is very much aware of its weather.
Our dedicated weather guru is Grant Le Marchant (AWT Director).
This, along with resources such as the Jersey Meterological Office, makes the lives of all of us at the Alderney Wildlife Trust that little bit easier.
