Just a note to say sorry that the blog had gone very quiet, a number of reasons including some technical ones meant that it was not being updated, so apologies to all.
Both Jeremy and I are now both off the island having completed our "season" out there.
We have handed the baton to the Sea Mammal Research Unit seal researchers from St. Andrews University who will be there until mid December. The builders who are working on the development of the Lowlight for the Isle of May Bird Observatory are also out there for a few days each week.
Over the winter period I will be making the occasional day trip and overnight stay and will post news of what the island is looking like and what is happening out there as often as I can.
