Can you spot Sammy?
The Scottish Seabird Centre offers the chance to see wildlife in its natural habitat. This is live activity that visitors to the Discovery Centre are controlling. The webcam images above refresh every 5 seconds and are transmitted live from our solar powered cameras.
In spring and summer, the camera at Dunbar Harbour brings wonderful live pictures of the famous kittiwake colony in the old Dunbar Castle ruins. This colony is the most accessible in Britain with more than 600 pairs of kittiwakes nesting, however these graceful seabirds have suffered in recent years with numbers decreasing by 50% around Scotland.
Our Bass Landing trips leave from Dunbar Harbour - the fantastic Fisher Lassie, a working fishing trawler owned by Gordon Easingwood, takes small groups onto the Bass Rock between March and October. It’s a fantastic experience, perfect for photography and nature enthusiasts.
The harbour is also home to one of the largest lifeboat stations in the area and, if you're lucky, you may also see Sammy, the resident seal, who spends his time swimming around the harbour hoping for a fish supper from the fishermen.
For more information on great things to see and do in Dunbar, visit the Discover Dunbar website. As the birthplace of John Muir, there are lots of outdoor adventures on offer.
If you take any nice photos of Dunbar Harbour share them with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #DunbarHarbour #SeabirdCentre #seabirddays.
If you like what you see on our cameras, visit the Discovery Centre and control them for yourself. You can extend your Seabird experience with a seasonal boat trip.
