First Five Days on the Rock

It seems like a long time since monday, when I got on a boat with all my stuff and shipped out to Skomer for the start of my five month stint.  This week I’ve seen a lot of good birds including the first Puffin, Guillemot and Razorbill to return to the island- as well as some nice migrants passing through.

The price to pay has been spending my time in cold buildings, there isn’t any heating out here and the winds have been cold!  Luckily I have a trusty hot water bottle to see me through the nights and have been wearing half a dozen layers of fleece and thermals to get me through the day!

But the weather is slowly but surely getting nicer, the birds are getting more interesting and sooner or later we will get our first guests to look after so it won’t be long before I can forget bout the cold…. hopefully…
