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.

Penguin chicks a couple of weeks later....

Gentoo chicks-there is a lot of krill in the oceans this year, so the chicks are growing rapidly and all looking very fat and healthy.

The Macaroni Penguin chicks are getting massive too!
