Just back from a fabulous 4 days (& nights) on Skokholm Island. It was meant to be 3 days & nights, but the weather turned so the boat was delayed by 24 hours. I wasn’t disappointed! To have such an amazing island to share with just 9 other people is a real privilege, even if the weather waxed and waned, and the Puffins came and went… Best migrant birds included 2 Ring Ouzels, and at least 2 Grasshopper Warblers caught by ringers working the traps of the newly re-established Bird Observatory (skokholm.blogspot.co.uk). A female Merlin graced the island, keeping the resident Peregrines on their toes. The company was fantastic (including my own daughter, Emily) and it really was a wrench to leave this morning. I will be back soon. Gallery to be added in a few days….
