Merry Christmas Y'all / by Jerry

Just a quick one to wish everyone a merry Christmas and happy new year.

I woke this morning to a blizzard. As you can see, that died away, but the very cold wind remains. I was out earlier reaching down burrows, looking for petrels and prions on which to deploy GLS trackers. With these we'll find out more about where these birds feed at which times of the year - vital information if you're trying to help save them.

People are working hard, not just on mapping the newly egg-laying albatrosses and counting all the newly-born seal puppies, but in the kitchen too. I can tell tomorrow's meal is going to be legendary.

Hope everyone out there has a good a time as I suspect I will.
