Wardens Back

Yesterday in almost perfect conditions the Skokholm wardens  returned. 

With the help of John Reynolds and the Dale Princess  from Neyland with an occasional Guillemot, Razorbill and Kittiwake seen on the passage it only took ten minutes or so to unload the boat and we could head up to the buildings for a quick condition check.  There was no damage anywhere and inside almost no signs of mould or damp damage - amazing after this stormy wet winter.  The dumper started almost immediately, although looking quite sad,  and Richard & Giselle were very happy indeed to be back on the island and looking forward to their four weeks of relative isolation.  No doubt the blog will start again as soon as they sort out their internet connection.  Helpers included Liz Thompson (formerly Gynn) who was warden exactly 35 years ago.

Changes to the booking system for the Islands



A quick note to let you know the changes that are going to take place to the booking system for Skomer and Skokholm, Sarah Kessel CEO of the Trust asked us to pass on the following message:

From the end of March, Wendy (the person who usually takes the bookings) will  working part time and the  bookings will be moving to the membership team at Tondu.   There is a great deal of work to do to manage the change-over, including information on the website etc.  There will inevitably be some disruption during and for a while after the handover process, so please bear with us as we make these changes.   I think that once the changeover has been done and the new team is up to speed, it will be easier to consider the possibility of future online booking.
