The stormy calm before the storm.

The week has been a busy one for the volunteers on skomer, tasks have included fixing hides, digging out compost toilets, painting, sorting out accommodation, taking materials to Skokholm, fixing signs and even a little bit of monitoring.

With a strong n wind for the better half of last week birdwatching has been tricky, but highlights have been Sarah's ring ouzel and some Godwits yesterday spotted by vol Geoff. Steady trickle of chiffchaff and willow warbler.

Sea Campion has started to flower but only ok the sheltered aspects which are spit facing.

Lots of movements of researchers and volunteers over the next few days as the island population starts to expand.
