The natural history of the Isles of Scilly
The Isles of Scilly enjoy Britain’s mildest climate and are home to a colourful array of native and introduced wild flowers and exotic trees, many found nowhere else in Britain. Every year migrant birds flock to the islands and bird-watchers visit in large numbers to try to find them. The lecture looks at the beautiful coastal scenery, the stunning wild flowers, and the many birds, mammals, insects and seashore life, which make these islands such an attraction for naturalists and photographers. Andrew has been visiting the islands for over 30 years and contributed to the Isles of Scilly Birds and Natural History Review.
