Since 2011, I have been spending November to April each year working for the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) on Signy Island in the South Orkney Islands, Antarctica. I work as a Zoological Field Assistant on the penguin and seal long-term monitoring programme. Before this, I spent 2.5 years on the sub-Antarctic island of Bird Island, South Georgia, in the South Atlantic.

This blog gives readers an insight into my day-to-day life in the Antarctic, from my first trip south in 2008 to the present day.

Bits and bobs.

Ice formations on the grass.

Pectoral sandpiper- just visiting- made a nice change from the usual species!

One of my Northern giant petrels on her egg.
Black-browed albatross colony, with the base behind.

My field hut at the Little Mac penguin colony. Provides an ideal holiday home.
