|New boardwalk section begins|
|Out with the old, in with the new|
|Team hard at work|
Saturday 29th March comments: The last few days have seen the team preparing the island as we open to the public on Tuesday (1st April). As part of the management work, we've been busy laying a new boardwalk...and it's not as easy as you may think!
The problem with the Farne Islands is that it is covered in Puffins and more to the point, Puffin burrows! The need for a boardwalk is obvious but laying a new pathway is tricky, so we've been inching around the burrows and laying the new footpath. It looks impressive (if you don't mind me saying!) and we are almost ready. All we need is a drop in the wind and things will be cooking on gas come 1st April. Are you ready?
