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.

End of the season

I fell miserably behind with my blog this season, and am now back in the UK after a busy but very enjoyable season. I am working for the RSPB for the summer, tracking seabirds at various uninhabited islands off the North West of Scotland. I'll be back at Signy in Autumn 2014 and hopefully will be able to pick up on the blog then, so watch this space...
