We had a brutal rain storm hit the island today. It brought high winds that toppled trees and broke limbs of others. Once the winds backed off we had to go out and clear the downed barnches away from albatross nests. Although we lost several nests only one adult was killed. This is a short video of the storm, taken from the safety of our office.

This morning we headed over to the neighboring island before dawn to do our work. We were fortunate enough to catch an amazing sunrise. I got in a bunch of great pictures and then a rain storm moved in and soaked us! Despite getting soaked and cold in the blowing rain, the experience was fantastic because the rain was pelting us, coming out of the north while the sunrise was still gooing strong in the southeast!
