      The longer notice you can give of the chosen date the more likely I can arrange something.

      Yes, please choose a date, with all the bank holidays and school breaks this can be a busy time. Even if the date changes it is at least a basis for planning.

          Hello John,

          At this point I would be interested as I enjoyed the meet you arranged last year. I will definately look at overnighting from Derbyshire.

          Look forward for more news

            WOW, what a fantastic response to this suggestion, thanks everyone.

            OK then, this certainly does look as though it is something that many would be willing to participate in and enjoy, so I'll make some enquiries and over the weekend & start the ball rolling re format and dates etc.

                Might be interested too - flexible on dates, name one/some and then hopefully we can get this nailed!

                Cheers

                  Re: Skomer Island meet: Spring 2010

                  Just checked the guidebook

                  Best dates for Puffins carrying sandeels are the last 3 weeks of June & 1st week of July. This is also a good time for Razorbills, Guilimots, Manx Shearwaters and some of the flowers should be good too.

                  Picking a date right in the middle I'm going to suggest the weekend of the 26/27 June with the group going out on the Saturday.

                  People may want to make it a long weekend/week and this is before schools breakup which should make accomdation easier.

                  Other ideas ?

                    Thanks everyone for your interest, it certainly looks as though it is worthwhile organising something. I haven't forgotten about this, and will try to get a list of possible dates up over the weekend, and if you could all then let me know your preference I can start the ball rolling.

                    The only thing about going over to the island on a Saturday, is that this tends to be the busiest day of the week. It might be better to choose a weekday - though I appreciate this makes it harder for those who can't easily get time off work.

                      If choosing a weekday is going to be less congested with better photographing conditions then I prefer this.

                        as long as teresa and I have enough notice a week day would not be a problem.

                          26/27 is very difficult as we only get back from France on 25th. Any days the following 2 weeks would be fine.

                            I would also OK with a midweek date, given notice.

                              If we go for a weekday, can it either be a Monday or Friday so I can still make a long weekend out of the trip.

                                I'd be interested too. But again it depends on dates as we're also pretty busy.

                                Have been meaning to get back sometime.
