During this recession we are very, very careful about what we spend our money on and to be honest I was expecting a lot more for the admission prices. My only consolation is that you are a charity and so at least we supported the great work you do! Had the gannets or puffins been there then maybe we would have felt differently. The children quickly got bored of moving the camera's around rocks on the Islands. There was no wildlife to spot at all. The whole experience was totally underwhelming for us. I really wish there had been more to do for age 6 plus children, especially interactive material. The paper crayon rubbings are good but could you incorporate an area with various feathers, an identification table with skulls, bones etc.... a quiz, some puzzles, get the kids to build a nest (just ideas, am sure you could think of many more) I know this can sometimes get a wee bit messy but the day we were there a few staff members were downstairs where this area could be tidied up every hour or so.
