Plenty of materials arrived to be moved up the island
Some stunning sun rises of recent
Sunday 18th September comments: Its been a few days since an update from the island but for a very good reason; a lack of internet! The early autumn is a good time to get various things done on the island from management work to house refurbishments!
In recent days we’ve had some new carpets fitted to the buildings (hence the lack of a computer and internet) and took delivery of timber and coal on a large scale. So we’ve been a busy team but its now time to focus back on the wildlife.
On the wildlife front, migrant birds continue to move through the island with the highlight of an immature Red-breasted Flycatcher on Saturday. Sea passage has been productive with good numbers of Divers and Shearwaters whilst Arctic Skuas continue to patrol the waters around the island. Hopefully we’ll soon be reporting the first Grey Seal pup of the autumn and then it’ll be all go!
