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 more observant of you may notice that there are actually no giant petrels at all in in the giant petrel picture from the previous post!  Below is the picture that I actually meant to put in.  The previous one just shows the nice green mosses and scenery of the west coast, with giant petrels flying over.
