And so it begins....

Dawn of a new season

Preparing for the season - Inner Farne

Brownsman cottage and old lighthouse

Sunday 18th March comments: Today marks a very significant day in the Farnes calender as it's the start of a new season. The rangers are travelling from far and wide, from Preston and Nottingham to as far away as Solihull and Hertfordshire. We've even got one member of staff heading up from the Isles of Scilly!

Today we'll be meeting and catching-up, having not seen each other since early December (I'm sure a beer or two tonight will be in order). This week we'll be mainland bound, using Seahouses as a base whilst we train and prepare for the forthcoming season. Then on Friday 23rd March (weather permitting!) we'll be sailing back to the islands to start the season for real. Here we go again...
