Living out on The Brothers island has been quite the awesome experience so far. Now that the end of June is among us, the seabird activity has really begun to accelerate.With the terns beginning to hatch and the number or guillemot burrows rising, Nate and I have had our hands full.
Since arriving to The Brothers in late May we have Identified many of the plants that inhabit both Westerns and Eastern Brothers. There are many different plants that are edible and some have been disappointing, however, none compare to Scotch Lovage of the parsley family. This delicious green is always fresh from the island and very nutritious!
One of the greatest parts about living out on The Brothers is that almost every night is rewarded by a postcard sunset that will illuminate the sky well into evening. Every night after the sunset we are also greeted by the arrival of the the leach’s storm petrels, as they use the darkness as cover.
