|Boardwalk construction begins...|
|Laying the new boardwalk|
|A little helper looking on|
|Looking good - the end product|
So the team went about the task of constructing the new boardwalk on Staple Island. The old boardwalk has been removed and the new boardwalk needs completing before we leave – so deadlines are tight! The day was constructive in more ways than one, and hopefully we’ll have everything sorted in the next week or two. We also had a few helpers – second coat seal pups were curious and often wandered into the building site – this is the Farnes after all!
On the bird front, it remains quite with a handful of Red-throated and a few Great Northern Divers lingering whilst the highlight was 5 Snow Buntings flying west towards the mainland.
