So after 9 long months I am finally back working on Bass Rock – and it’s bloomin’ brilliant!
We timed our first visit pretty well. According to Maggie Sheddan from the Seabird Centre, landing over the last few weeks has been pretty much impossible due to the unfavourable combination of swell and slippery landing steps.
There were no such problems this week though; some great skippering by Robbie Dale put us on the east landing on Monday afternoon allowing us to spend a fabulous 3 hours looking for colour ringed gannets in the sunshine.
I’m going to keep this blog really short. In my next post I’ll tell you why we were looking for colour ringed birds but now I’m going to leave you with this short film I made of Monday’s landing which captures why Bass Rock is such an incredible place to work (and yes, of course it’s always that sunny!)
