Life as a Skokholm Island Volunteer : Part 2

September 15, 2019

It has been almost 2 months since my last post about my experiences working on Skokholm and the time has flown by. Summer has slipped away and the great autumn migration is now fully underway! The seabirds have slowly left us, although the manx shearwaters and storm petrels are still around for now, and watching the island change through the seasons has been one of the joys of living here long term.
