Must say tumble down beach is one of the most beautiful I have ever set on. You got to be physically strong enough to go down there in order to be able to get back up again as you can only use your legs sort of to rest. About 30meters of rope climbing with your arms

Here is a few more pictures, even a Sea Elephant!

Die strandjie is 'n wonderlike plek. Ek is saam met Marthan Bester daar af om genetiese materiaal van robbe te kry. 'n Sirkeltjie se vel en vleis uit die voorfin se sagte vleisies... Moet net nie dat hulle jou raakhap terwyl jy hulle aan die stert laat hang nie - hou hulle maar ver van die lyf af☺.
Gelukkig is die graspolle stewig geanker - jy kan maar trap en vashou - hulle gaan nerens nie.

Regtig n besondere strandjie en die prof is net so n 'yaster' van n mens! Hy het respek verdien deur: 'lead by example'
Ouderdom is egter n bliksem en dit begin nou wys, so ook wys dit aan John Cooper....wie ken en onthou nog vir John Cooper?
Se wat mens wil, hy kan n pyn en n half wees op enige dag want die woord groen word totaal verkrag maar die man het ook ongelooflike goeie werk gedoen en is steeds op spoed!

I guess that the generator is buggered good and proper, cause there been no communication for 10 whole days.  :pot:

A pity cause I was looking forward to a few photos of bird life, flora and maybe a snoek or two.

Looks like our tax money is being earned by the folks down there, and it not one great big jol.

 :spitcoffee: Ok ok, I got a couple of nice pictures to share!

This is the Gough Bunting, you will find it nowhere else in the World. Unbelievable to know she only exists on a remote island in the middle of the South Atlantic! Isn't she stunning?

One of the great predators, they are visious and will even take other birds on in flight!

Skua!!  :laughing4:

Look how the mom (or dad) is hugging this one. They are very difficult to know apart...even the scientists struggle to know male from female

Lastly the stunning Yellow nose Albatross. I will soon go up the Mountain to photograph the Tristan Albatross which is very similar to the Wandering Albatross! They are HUGE!!

The Edinburgh will be here tomorrow late afternoon with parts for our generator, new water trap and filters etc. A couple of us are also expecting some parcels - we had the opportunity to buy some stuff for our self and I got some fishing lures etc! Can't wait and will as soon as possible update with photos as this is also quite interesting in 'how we do it' (use the crane etc)

Cheers for now!  :thumleft: :)

I have seen these birds here on the Pacific coast of South America too.

Great to see you having a good time Tom. You´re looking very happy too! :thumleft:

when you said you were going to post pics of birds I of course thought that you had taken pics of the female members of the team  :peepwall:
