Our 4th day was very short because we woke up very late, but here is what happened yesterday and today:
Yesterday after breakfast (lunch) we went out for a little walk. It was very windy, so the boats couldn’t run and there weren’t any visitors. We saw a few Puffins who are still feeding chicks and a lot of seals. We love the Puffins, because they look so beautiful with their funny bill. On the way back to the house we found a baby Lesser Black-backed Gull. He or she was ill. Sadly it died today. Bee explained that there are over 8000 Lesser Black-backed Gulls breeding on Skomer and not all will survive – that’s nature.

Today we went to the farm to help Leighton (Visitor Officer) with the Wednesday Children Activities. Sadly it was rainy, so only 4 children joined in for a little while. None the less we had fun. We played football with Leighton and Sarah (Long-term Volunteer) after the official children activity was finished. Luckily there will be more Children Activities next Wednesday – so come and join in!
This afternoon we counted the seals in North Haven: There were 21 seals. Every day there are more and we are waiting impatiently for the first seal pup!!!!

All the best
