The public can discover the fascinating lives of Alderney’s seabirds through our live webcams from the heart of the puffin colony on Burhou. On the webcams you will be able to see Puffins, Herring, Lesser Black-backed and Great Black-backed Gulls, plus the odd rabbit or two hopping about. In recent years we have also spotted peregrines, buzzards and curlew on the cameras. The cameras are infra-red (harmless to wildlife), meaning you can watch Burhou's nightlife - try and catch a glimpse of Storm Petrels at night too.
The cameras are live during the breeding season, April-July.
The webcams are part of the LIVE: teaching through nature programme, an interactive educational project for schools in the UK and Channel Islands. This brings the life of the puffin (and the nature and wildlife of Alderney) into classrooms via our live webcams and regular blogs. Find our free teaching resources on the site, covering aspects of the curriculum including science, literacy and maths for Keystage 1 and 2 students.
LIVE aims to educate and inspire a love of nature in pupils, while helping to promote creativity and confidence.
