Thursday 23rd April comments: A very special request from Carrie (who lives and works on the Island) for today’s blog posting, as its her fathers birthday and he is a big follower of the blog. Carrie writes…
Coming out to
the Isle of May to study seabirds is easily one of the best jobs in the world! We arrive on the island in early April, just after the birds have come back from their wintering grounds, and will stay here until the last of the chicks fledge in late July. We get the joy of seeing pairs reunited after their winter at sea, eggs being laid, chicks hatching and everything in between.
However, spending four months working on an island does mean that we miss out on the summer festivities of the mainland, and today is no exception. Some 200 hundreds miles north of us my Dad is celebrating his 60th Birthday…..HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!! Sorry I can’t be home to join in the celebrations but you can now make good use of your bus pass and come visit me and the birds on the May. Love Carrie-Marell x
