Plenty of jobs to get through today. But the most exciting thing was our trip over to the top of the slope to see how the colony was doing. It was blowing a full gale from the north, so the wind was straight in our faces, making it almost impossible to hold binoculars steady. Down below us there were 15 females, 6 pups and 2 males – the real start of the season.
It seems to have been a very dry year so far – there’s not much water in the well, so a wee bit of rain wouldn’t go amiss.
We promised introductory pics – here’s the team.
