Skokholm on BBC Radio 4

This weeks BBC Radio 4 Afternoon Drama, 'Through the Wire', opens with a description of very early Manx shearwater research on Skokholm, and two of the characters, John Buxton and Peter Condor, are strongly linked to Skokholm too.

John Buxton was Ronald Lockley's brother-in-law (married to Lockley's sister, Marjorie), and wardened Skokholm between Lockley's stints in 1939.  Peter Condor wardened Skokholm from 1947 to 1953 and in due course became Director of the RSPB.

You have until 7 May 2012 to listen to it on the BBC iPlayer
