Seabirds And Saints

Recently visitors who came to a God in Nature retreat made a day visit to the Scottish seabird centre at North Berwick. The growth in pilgrimage includes both those who want to pray in a holy place, and those who want to find peace in a place of natural beauty. This visit combined both types. This amazing centre has permanent cameras on three bird sanctuary islands in the Firth of Forth, which the visitor can control from the centre. You can zoom in on every detail of a bird or a rock. Bass Rock, one of these islands, was the home of Saint Baldred, who the Lindisfarne monks sent to be a hermit there, and an ancient pilgrims chapel fronts the centre?s Saints and Seabirds exhibition. Their web site is www.seabird.org.
