Now, one year later, Chris Ward's team is back to repair our sea wall. Last week the repairs began and it was quite exciting to watch the unloading of diggers and other equipment from the landing craft.

Of course we were a bit worried how the wildlife would react to so much noise and all the strange machinery but we needn't have worried ourselves. The Razorbills were watching from the cliffs and the seals were so curious they came muzzling the boat. Of course too much curiosity may be bad for the cat/seal and the work will still need to be done by the time the birds start breeding.

Unfortunately private landing on the beach will not be possible until the work is finished. The Dale Princess will be running from 1 April (weather permitting) so exploring Skomer will not be hindered by the building project.
