Some interesting birds and new arrivals

We have had some interesting birds over the last week including Mealy Redpoll (Dave Boyle) and Nightingale (Dave Boyle....again, it is good to have his rare bird attracting skills back on the island!).

Annette and Akiko (PhD students) have also arrived for their first solo season of fieldwork.

They are settling in well, as has been very well summarised in Annette's blog:

"......Transferring thousands of pounds worth of research equipment, as well as all our stuff and enough food for a couple of weeks on the island using a small zodiac was quite an adventure, but we eventually reached the house without having lost anything (or anyone) to the ocean and just in time to watch the sunset with a wel-deserved ale in hand.........."
