Thursday 26th January comments: All is quiet on the islands with very little happening. Good numbers of Fulmar are on the cliff ledges whilst the resident Shags remain scattered across the rocky outcrops. We're still six weeks away from the first returning Puffins and the Terns...well they'll still be sunning themselves in the southern hemisphere.
Behind the scenes it's still all go, as preparation work continues. Projects to improve the toilets and staff accommodation are keeping me busy whilst reports are being complete and various items purchased. The month of February will fly-by and we'll soon be embarking on another Farnes season and I can't wait.
