Today´s forecast was 6 m/s SW wind, temperature plus 6 Celsius. Last night was first rainy, but the night was over at 04.50 AM when Teemu started bake rolls!
Wind has gone down to 4m/s and later it calmed more. After the breakfast we helped the radio amateurs; Wind had broken their longest antenna. First we took the mast down and did a little bit of fixing and then rose the mast back up. It was almost a two hours hard job.
Then we heard that the radio amateurs would leave the islet today. Reason for that was the weather forecast which promised very hard wind between Sunday and Tuesday, some 10-17m/s. Kalle would leave with them.
Suddenly a white-tailed eagle (Halicaetus albicilla) flew over the islet. During our 12 o´clock coffee break we got our first visitor to the kitchen. It was a bird called Hippiäinen (Regulus Regulus, the smallest bird in Finland!). Seppo hypnotized the bird with blinked light and got it out. At 4 PM we are going to go fishing with nets. Let see if we shall tomorrow have a fish dinner.
At 7 PM Mats came with his boat Serena to pick up the two radio amateurs and Kalle. They will travel from Mariehamn to Helsinki on the midnight ferry. Have a nice trip! To be continued...
