Sorry it's been a while, it's been quite busy despite the Obs being closed to guests for the winter. A couple bits of news for you before a little photo montage of the last couple of weeks:
- The DirectFlight Summer Timetable is now available (it's the same as last year's summer timetable), so anyone visiting us in 2013 can now confirm their travel plans.
- Keep your eyes open for the Fair Isle prediction competition coming to this blog soon. Get your thinking caps on for what rares could turn up on Fair Isle this year...
Now, here's those photos:
|How about this for your office? Deadlines for applications for the 2013 jobs at FIBO close on 15th February.|
|In a 'mixed' period of weather, there have been several relatively mild days...|
|...and some not so mild. Lying snow is relatively unusual on Fair Isle, although the airstrip spent a couple of days with a light dusting.|
|One of our longest lived seabirds, Fulmars, have seen it all before and the odd blizzard doesn't worry them.|
|Grace and Freyja both enjoyed their first taste of haggis at the Burn's Night event in the Hall.|
|Grace has got a new Fair Isle hat (thanks Elena), which is modelled here by Freyja.|
|Whilst Grace models a different outfit at the Lerwick Museum.|
|High seas in early February saw Fair Isle battered by waves, this was the day after the big storm and things were still rather swelly on the west coast.|
|A trip to Lerwick (a very well timed dental appointment!) coincided with the Pine Grosbeak at Collafirth, which was nice. Grace added it to her list but was more excited by the fish and chips afterwards.|
