Collecting timber for the islands

Not just visitors who are transported out to the Farnes

Offloading begins

The move begins...onto the jetty

Timber galore
Tuesday 26th November comments: It’s that time of year again - Farnes management work! With our ground nesting seabirds long gone and the visitor season now finished, it’s time to get on with some good old fashioned management work.

Today we took full advantage of the mild conditions to head to the mainland and collect the timber required to replace some old boardwalks on Inner Farne. With our trusty Mitsubishi, the timber was collected and we were soon on the boat shipping out our latest supplies.

As ever, it is a lot of grafting for the team and they’ll certainly sleep well tonight after all that lifting, but the job is done, the timber is on the islands and the new boardwalks will be constructed. Hammers at the ready!
