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.
