St Kilda Work Party 3 waiting at Harris…

Our very own Donald Paterson, is leading St Kilda Work Party 3 (SK WP 3 2015) and should have been heading out to St Kilda today – we hope to be able to bring you regular updates throughout the time the Work Party are on St Kilda – here’s the first update from SK WP 3 2015’s leader:

St Kilda Work Party 3 – update

Well, today, Work Party 3 should have departed for St Kilda. Sadly the weather is not great and Angus (of Kilda Cruises) could not take us out. He has suggested that tomorrow we may “have a window” and will keep us updated during the day.

Meantime of course, Work Party 2 are enjoying themselves on Hirta wondering when they will be collected (after we have disembarked from Orca, they board. By now they will have used the soup that Work Parties traditionally leave for the arriving party!

So….. today 6 of us went to Tarbert “shopping” and 7 walked over the road and hill path to the beautiful church at Rodel. Tomorrow?? We wait and see.

In this pic, Fraser, the relief warden, Laura and Stuart sit outside the bunkhouse we are staying in discussing plant names.

More will follow as the work party proceeds.
