Burravoe Primary School trip to Sumburgh


On Wednesday I had to be on the bus at  7:20 outside of my house we had to pack spare clothes and we could take money and cameras. When we got to Ulsta we meet Melissa, Leah and their Mum. Melissa sat by me on the bus. When we were waiting for the other ferry because the one at Ulsta was broken. There was some tourist that were pointing at something but we weren’t quite sure what it was in the water. A lady went over to our bus and said that there were some killer whales in the sea. Everybody was so excited it was the first time some of us has seen a killer whale and I was one of them. The killer whales were hunting in a pod near to an island not far from Yell. We got on the ferry to Toft that took 20 minutes. We first went past Voe on our drive, Then Tingwall, Then Quarff, then Cunings brugh, then Dunrossnes and then finally we got to Sumburgh. It took over 1 hour and a half because we went to the toilets. We first went to Sumburgh Head were the RSPB were they worked in a bit of the  Light House . Rebecca told us about birds we first played a game were we were sander lings and the teachers had a blue material  and when we are running over to get some paper food before the teid  comes in. We walked up the path and saw some Guillimots, Fulmor and Razorbill. Unfortunately there weren’t many Puffins but we did get to see 2 puffins close up. Next we went  Jarlshof that wasn’t that far from Sumburgh light house. We sat down and had a snack I had a tuna sandwich. We heard a helicopter noise flying ahead of us we thought that it was going to Sumburgh airport but insted it flew into Sumburgh hotel which was right next to Jarlshof. At Jarlshof  there is a little gift shop and a museum they is also very old houses with round houses, wheel houses, Laird’s house.
