Presentation:

Long known as a top destination for bird-watchers, the islands continue to attract visitors during the peak migration periods, but in the quieter times of the year the islands have much to offer with a rich flora, including many species seen nowhere else in Britain, moths, butterflies and other insects and many resident birds, including colonies of seabirds on the uninhabited islands. Marine life abounds and the crossing to the islands on board the Scillonian III often provides views of dolphins and even the occasional minke whale. Andrew has been visiting the islands for 40 years and his lecture covers the seasons from spring to autumn.
