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.

The work huts at Gourlay, where I mainly work.

Some of the neighbours (young male elephant seals).

The Ernest Shackleton by moonlight.

My commute to work (you can see my footprints over the ice).

A Signy sunset.
