The last 48 hours has seen us consumed by a vast swathe of midges, zero geolocators deployed on stormies (boo), 6 radio-tags deployed on stormies (hurrah), Han consume a bowl of cereal using a spoon with a 60cm-long handle (which had previously been used for removing storm-petrel chicks from nests), our first deceased stormie chick (sniff sniff), Julie tell a joke to a sheep (it didn't laugh, but I did when she recounted it - at both the joke and the tale), 1 Whimbrel, 1 otter fishing in West Ham and 2 hooded crows creating a racket at God knows what hour of the morning! And, very little sleep...in case that wasn't obvious. Needless to say, we have now escaped the island for a much-needed break. An update on the radio-tagging to follow shortly...
