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.

Spring arrivals and more...

Day-old gentoo penguin chicks.

The North Stacks and North Cliffs on a sunny day.

Young wandering albatross practicing using his wings.

More little gentoo chicks.

Strange cloud formations over South Georgia.

What beautiful pictures! It's so ironic that I found your blog. I was tracing my dog's pedigree back, and her ancestors were part of the first expedition to Antarctica with Admiral Byrd.

I really enjoy seeing the pictures!

Wonderful photos. What an adventure you must be having.

Best wishes from Sybil in Nova Scotia.
