Telling the Marine Ranger's story

I was joined last week by Verity Walker, Mike Bolam and Andrea Protheroe, interpretation consultants working for the Trust. They were working on a project called 'Scotland's Stories' which uses sound recordings and photographs to tell the stories of people doing the huge variety of jobs in the Trust from Stalkers in the Highlands to Conservators in castles and Marine Rangers on beaches!

We were very lucky with the weather with beautiful blue skies for the 2 days they were at St Abbs. We even ventured out on a boat and took a trip up to St Abb's Head to record the fantastic sounds of a seabird city.

This project illustrates the huge diversity of people and skills working across the Trust all over Scotland and will be well worth having a look at when it is completed later in the summer. The photo shows Andrea using an underwater microphone to capture underwater sounds to use on the soundtrack to my story, the Marine Ranger's story.
