      Windy, too. We can see the spray being blown off the top of the waves.

      MV Edinburgh was expected to load passengers and return to Cape Town on Tuesday 27th May, however, a
      storm over the weekend has made sea conditions for loading impossible and departure will be delayed
      until later in the week.

      Passengers include Administrator Alex Mitham and his wife Hasene who are returning to the UK for
      Alex to conduct business and enjoy a period of leave.

      The RSPB is recruiting a Marine Biologist and Fisheries Biologist to work on the Tristan da Cunha
      Islands

      Marine Biologist

      The RSPB is looking for an experienced and motivated marine biologist to assist in the development
      of monitoring methods for the marine environment around the Tristan da Cunha islands in the South
      Atlantic. This is an exciting opportunity to work in a place where baseline knowledge is low and
      much remains to be discovered. Working with local divers, you will help to establish methods to
      enable the community to monitor changes in inshore marine habitats. Please note that the post will
      involve diving in an extremely remote environment with no air access.

      The post is full-time for a contract of six months and a salary between £ 23,000 - £27,000 per annum

      Fisheries Biologist

      The RSPB is looking for an experienced and motivated fisheries biologist to help guide the
      establishment of systems to monitor rock lobster stocks around the Tristan da Cunha islands in the
      South Atlantic. This is an exciting opportunity to work on an MSC certified fishery in one of the
      world's most remote and pristine marine areas. Working with local divers and the local fisheries
      team, you will help to establish methods to enable the community to manage their fishery more
      effectively. Ideally, you will have worked in a rock lobster fishery elsewhere in the world and will
      be excited by the idea of applying your expertise in a new setting. Please note that the post will
      involve diving in an extremely remote environment with no air access.

      The post is full-time for a contract of six months and a salary between £25,000 - £30,000 per annum
      For both posts the closing date for applications is 18th June 2014 and interviews are planned for
      23rd June 2014.

      For details see the RSPB Website at www.rspb.org.uk/vacancies
