Marine Wildlife Summer Filming Trip, Pembrokeshire

  • One car full of kit: underwater FS7, tripod and topside set up, drone and slider.

  • Two dives with a colony of seals and one particularly pretty, playful one.

  • Three 04:30 starts to catch sunrise.

  • Four months talking about this trip….one day to plan logistics and prepare.

  • Five glorious boat trips.

  • Six beautiful west coast sunsets.

  • Seven Phantom4Pro explorations early in the morning and at last light.

  • Eight nights at Castle Ely Mill, Whitland.

  • Nine filming days – meeting scientists, making friends, moving gear around and laughing.

What a trip!

  • Zero Otters spotted (despite our best efforts).

  • 1,200 miles on the road.

  • 31,000 gorgeous puffins thriving on Skomer.

  • Thousands of Manx Shearwaters returning to Skomer under the cover of darkness.

  • Too many drinks enjoying sunset over the Atlantic Ocean at Druidstone.
