Friday 24th February comments: The new season is fast approaching and today we took the opportunity to take some much needed kit out to the island. With the support of skipper Roy and his trusty boat Osprey (the boat takes passengers out during the summer months, more details:http://www.isleofmayboattrips.co.uk we set sail to the island.
With calm conditions and generally a flat sea, we made good timing and we were soon arriving at the island. Over the next hour or so various supplies and stocks were taken up as the preparation for a new season continues. On the 1st April, the island will open officially to the public but before then it needs to be staffed, sorted and opened so plenty of pre-season work to do.
Over the forthcoming weeks we’ll be coming and going with full reports on visits (especially about what wildlife can be seen) as the Isle of May is gearing up for another seabird season. The next big question is who is coming? Are you up for a visit? If you’ve not been before, it’s highly recommended!
