Sunday 21st February comments: We may find ourselves in the grips of a worldwide pandemic (its almost been one year since it hit the UK – where does time go?) but we are still preparing for the start of a new season (albeit a restricted, socially distanced one). We are hoping the season will start from 1st April as boats from Fife and Lothian will head our way bringing visitors to enjoy the wonders of the Isle of May.
However before then we have an island to set up, accommodation to clean and to ensure the safety of all those who will live on the island over the next eight months. Tomorrow we are heading out to the island to start that process as we being a week of contractual work, everything from treatment of water systems to fire extinguisher tests, it all needs doing and no better time to do it.
So this week coming we’ll be bringing you daily reports from the island with updates, we are not expecting many seabirds (still early) but we can see what has been happening over the winter months and bring the stories to you. So stay tuned this week, plenty to tell but first we have a boat to catch…. See you on the other side.
