As I passed Longstone Island on Monday I spotted a Little Egret resting on the grass beside Sunderland Hole, which is where Grace Darling and her Father launched their boat. As the tides are big at the moment, and it was near high tide I could get a good look at the bird. The only problem I … Read more
Well we had our first Pelagic Trip today and we could have not asked for a better day. We headed out at 10.30am with the sun shinning and a little S.W. Wind, we decided to go south along the coast as the wind was a little chilly and I thought if we have an hour … Read more
Its been a mixed week with the weather but it’s been a great week for Harbour Porpoise. We have seen them everyday this week. The Harbour Porpoise is one of the smallest of marine mammals and is quite hard to spot with it being so small. The dorsal fin, tail fin and back are dark grey … Read more

Puffins are just a beautiful bird and they must be one of the most pictured bird ever. I don’t know what it is about the Puffin but they are lovely. When they arrive at the islands we see them more on the water than on the land and as they start to settle they start to … Read more
Over the last few weeks I have been helping a friend hauling crab and lobster pots. We have been starting at 2.30am and getting finished at 9.30am and then I rush home grab a quick shower, change and dash back down the harbour. It has made it a very long day but the one bonus has been the sunrise’s, the birds, a … Read more
