Nia, Mike and DewiWe are yet to see our first day visitors of 2011 due to the raging swell in our harbour and around the lifeboat station.

We did however manage to sneak over two new arrivals at slack water on Saturday afternoon. Our newest member of staff, Nia Stephens, will be with us for 5 months as Reserve Assistant. She will be helping me look after volunteers, leading guided walks and boat trips and a million and one other things besides!

Also on board was regular volunteer Mike who will be giving up 6 weeks of his time to help on the reserve this year. Now we just need our lambs to start arriving. The ewes are all in the lambing fields near the farm and we are checking them regularly, but nothing is happening just yet.
