A diary with a difference…..

First visitor trip

The first visitor trip of the year tomorrow, hurray. It’s a gloriously sunny day here, we’ve been relaxing on our day off. Although we did go for a shelduck survey, only ten hanging around. Not good when u consider back in 1995 at this time of year wardens were seeing in excess of 100 shelducks. Where have they all gone??

The boat is not fully booked so we need more people spreading the word that Flat Holm exists and you can visit. Tell everyone you meet.

Your favourite warden Matt is on the Weakest Link this Sunday the 20th March at 14:35. So make sure you watch and tell everyone you know. It should be hilarious. What a way to celebrate ones birthday, with a national tv appearance.

Got to go, I have a chocolate and banana cake in the oven.

See you all soon.

    Hi Matt
    Are there lots of empty places on the boat tomorrow? If I just turn up at Penarth do you think I’ll be able to come out to the island. It will be impossible to try to book a space through the office before departure tomorrow.
    I feel the need of a little Flat Holm fresh air!
    I’ll lead a group too – of course!

    Good luck to the start of your season. Will be thinking of all the great wildlife I will be missing. G’day from life here in Australia.

    • Hello Anne,

      Sorry for the late reply, I have been away.

      I have not found a bird yet, unfortunately the mail bags full of letters from single ladies never materialised, they may have gone to the wrong island.

      Would you like to come visit this beautiful part of Wales? You will be made more than welcome and if I have the ingredients I will make you some banana and chocolate cake.

      It was a scary but fantastic experience being on your show. thankyou.
