Day spent finishing with all of the end of season tasks – cleaning the lab, Obs etc.

Lasse left today to give two at the Obs overnight; Chris & Kay

This is our last night on Landsort, marking the end of our stay which commenced in late March, during which time there has been 215 days of ringing, with only 9 days lost due to bad weather. It also marks the end of our 5th year here, so Landsort and Observatory life have become part of our day to day existence. A full report on the 2018 season will be available on the website after the end of the month.

So, it’s time to say goodbye but we must thank a lot of people for their support, friendship and help during our stay here. The Board, members, guests, summer visitors, tourists and the many island friends we have been fortunate enough to meet since 2013 have left a huge impression on us both. Whilst we are looking forward to being at our ‘other island home’ (especially the wood fire!!) we leave with a big feeling of sadness too. Thank you everyone and we hope that the Observatory continues to develop and grow in the way in which we’ve been lucky enough to witness in the last few years.

We know we have not always pleased everyone, but that’s life – we have done our best!

Take care everyone and thanks for everything
Chris och Kay!!!
