It was another uneventful day here on Skomer, due to the never ending rain which we received today. Some day visitors braved the weather and ventured out onto the island, with some brief sunny spells they caught some glimpses of the Puffins.
The staff enjoyed a lovely curry night, made by Holly, Ben and Dave who are the researchers here on Skomer. Everyone had a wonderful meal and we are all very grateful to them for making the amazing meal! Who said island life had to be basic, hey!?
One of the highlights of Skomer at the moment is the oldest puffin recorded on the island, which was tagged as a young adult in 1982! It is still seen here on Skomer, and Dave B the researcher has been monitoring it closely over the past 8 years! Hard to imagine it returns every year since then! Below you can see the picture of the Puffin here on Skomer.
