Two penguins walk along the ice, one with its flippers spread wide. Earlier this week wild winds kept us almost literally on our toes, but it settled down by the weekend. Now we await the retreat of the sea ice, particularly so the marine biologists can begin sea urchin collection. Preparations for Christmas are also underway!

Wellsy testing the ice thickness  upwards of 1.8 metres at this locality and still rock solid We have had another busy week, cramming in a lot in the space of just seven days. To start with we had the skiway out in front of the station to prepare in anticipation of the CASA 212s arrival from Casey, when it is ready and the weather allows. The finished article looked mighty fine until the wind got up last night and it is now slightly lumpier than this image portrays. I think the groomers will be back out there again before the plane arrives. 12 November 2010

Sunset to the south west of Davis station The Melbourne Cup was watched with eager anticipation from all punters alike, with the proceeds of the sweepstake going to charity. Last week saw Kim and Ben, helped by Nick on Friday, going around all the huts and tidying them up, ready for field work for the summer season. Long days in the field hardly feel like a chore when you have Adelie penguins coming to check out what you’re up to, seal pups galore, and a sunset so incredible that you have to be here to believe it. 5 November 2010
