So, today is 1st March, but where did February go? Sorry that things have been a little quiet on the blog front over the last few weeks, the reason being that I have been somewhat busy with so much other stuff that there just hasn't been time. So what has been going on then I hear you cry!
So, as I say, a lot of work, but the results have been great and should really improve visitor access to the Reserve. The work has been 50% funded by Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) because St Abb's Head is a Spotlight National Nature Reserve (NNR). The designation as a NNR means that the area is nationally important for wildlife (one of only 50 or so in Scotland) and the term "Spotlight" indicates that SNH see St Abb's Head as one of the creme de la creme as far as visitor access and enjoyment is concerned.
And if all this wasn't enough to keep me occupied, I also has to go through the complicated process of recruiting a new member of staff as Georgia, our Marine Ranger, is moving on to pastures new, or more accurately, she is running away to sea! She will working as crew on a dive boat that travels all around Scottish waters and even across to Norway on occasions. Georgia will be leaving us at the end of this month, so you will need to get in quick if you want to say your goodbyes.
