In just Two weeks time, I will be swapping my home from a  busy town to a small remote island just south of Shetland.

From This

 To this

Im heading up to Fair Isle working at the world famous bird observatory. Founded in 1958, it was the brain child of George Waterson which he dream't up while he was in a prisoner  of war camp. Run by a small charitable trust, it is still going strong after 60 years!

The new Fair isle Bird Observatory situated in Maver's Cup.

Home to hundreds of thousands of seabirds in the summer
 including the
Commical Puffin to the mighty Great skua.

Fair isle is also world known for its famous Knitwear.

Close encounters with Killer Whales.
