The Base in 2003

Almost unrecognizable when compared to earlier base pictures, the green is a little less stark against the background, but I can't help feeling that the industrial estate design doesn't have the soul of earlier incarnations of the base. The fact that it is now a summer-only base and that no-one winters there means that there's probably no-one who thinks of it as "their base" any more as generations of wintering FIDS have done previously. The base is for terrestrial and bird science these days, so no wet lab, boating or diving, marine has moved to Rothera.
