Un santuario de aves en “La isla del tesoro” que inspiró a Stevenson

Situados en el fiordo o estuario del río Forth, frente a la pintoresca localidad de North Berwick, en Escocia, un grupo de islotes de origen volcánico sirve para que cientos de miles de aves construyan sus nidos y formen auténticas colonias entre las rocas.

El espectáculo de las aves que revolotean como un verdadero enjambre de abejas es el mismo que inspiró a Robert Louis Stevenson su novela “La isla del tesoro”. En este verdadero santuario de aves marinas,  su abuelo, que era  ingeniero, construyó un faro. Allí también, la familia Stevenson alquiló una casa en la costa donde pasaban los veranos y el futuro escritor, un niño enfermizo, jugaba con otros niños, veía pasar los barcos e imaginaba historias de piratas y naufragios.

La localidad de North Berwick, tras la llegada del ferrocarril en 1850, se convirtió en uno de los lugares más populares de veraneo del norte de esta isla, lo que le valió el nombre de ‘Biarritz del norte’.

Gaviotas, frailecillos, cormoranes, alcatraces, aguzanieves, eíderes, fulmares, alcas tordas y otros de nombres más o menos exóticos forman verdaderas colonias que constituyen una espectacular atracción turística, pero el Centro de Aves de Escocia (Scottish Seabird Centre) construido en el año 2000, es pionero en la observación no intrusiva de aves, lo que le ha valido numerosos premios tanto turísticos como del sector medioambiental.

Durante los meses de verano y hasta finales de septiembre es posible además, rodear las islas en barco y ver cómo decenas de miles de aves toman el sol en las paredes rocosas o revolotean como un enjambre.

    Cheers

    I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website
    owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will
    be much more useful than ever before.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is important and
    all. But imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this blog could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
    Very good blog!
