The overall aim was to give staff in SNH an idea of what sort of work we do on the National Nature Reserves as well as showing off the magical isle while getting some help to get ready welcome the visitors to the island. The evaluation forms that they get to fill in once they return to their offices will quickly tell what they thought of their "Isle of May Experience", but at least with them going I am hoping for an improvement with the weather.
