This is a personal collection of random memories old and new associated with
my "wild life" on Fair Isle one of the Shetland Islands part of Scotland and the most remote inhabited island in the UK.
population 60 people, 1200 sheep, 20,000 puffins and a few rare birds.
Welcome back Good Shepherd! and a few new birds...
Good Shepherd coming into the North Haven today.
I was happy to see her but was equally glad I wasn't on board.
The Good Shepherd Ferry went out for refit and or maintenance on the 1st of March and came back today 30 days later... Due to technical problems and new mechanical parts needed we made due with freight planes and 1 trip from the Snolda Ferry on the 17th. So a few more trips will be made soon to restock the Isle with Feed & Fuel.
New birds in the Garden today...
