Atlantic Grey Seals Spotted Today


This tiny plane shuttles islanders and visitors back and forth  to Shetland (Mainland)...when the weather is suitable. We had two flights today-which means no ice on the runway.

On the isolated beaches along the west coasts, behind the Croft house we are staying at, I easily spotted a grey atlantic seal, after a 10 minute trek down the grassy steep hills.
Fair Isle draws hundreds of visitors a year,  some coming from as far away as America  and Zambia (Me and Sarah).Marooned halfway between the Shetland and Orkney archipelagos, this isle stands alone-as Britain's most remote inhabited island. Being here in the Winter, during the pandemic makes it even more remote, more special, more edgy.
