A Fond Farewell

Tuesday, September 29th 2015

It was another beautiful day and the volunteers and canine companions got stuck into lopping and pruning back trees and shrubs on the one of the net rides.  

We need to keep a clear line of sight along these rides so that the birds can pass through and fly into the mist nets.

We enjoyed a special lunch today as sadly tomorrow we say goodbye to Stacey, who will be ‘migrating’ south for the winter to work for the British Antarctic Survey.   We look forward to her return journey to work at Foxglove in the Spring.

After lunch we all enjoyed a short presentation by Stacey on the work she does on Signy Island working with Adelie, Chinstrap and Gentoo penguins.  There were some amazing photographs of icebergs.

A big thank you to everyone who helped out today both in the field and in providing a lovely lunch.
