I work as a Zoological Field Assistant, and am the 2009 Winter Base Commander, at Bird Island Research Station, one of the British Antarctic Survey's five research bases in Antarctica. The main remit of my job is seal fieldwork as part of BAS' Long Term Monitoring and Survey programme. Science has been carried out on Bird Island since 1958. I work with Antarctic fur seals and leopard seals, as well as assisting with the seabird fieldwork programme. Contact me on: ewanedwards at gmail dot com

We are now more than halfway through the winter, and I haven't updated this since April. I promise some updates soon, in the meantime please read the Bird Island diaries on the BAS website, at http://www.antarctica.ac.uk/living_and_working/diaries/bird_island/2008/04/index.php

The April diary was written by me, and I am in the process of completing the July diary also.

I will get some new photos on arctocephalus.blogspot.com soon!
