Island Child by Ann Lockley

A new book that every Skokholm-ite or island lover should enjoy has just been published...

"When reading through the diaries of her father, the well-known naturalist and writer R. M. Lockley, Ann Lockley was struck by the differences between what he had written and what she remembered. So here, she gives her side of things. A readable and enjoyable story about an unusual childhood."

Reunion 2013

Hello Friends

If you made it, we hope you agree we had a fantastic day at this year's Friends Reunion.

We had a full house for our return to the Tithe Barn at Bishops Cleeve. A day full of catching up with old and new friends, and fantastic food.

As well as the usual updates on the previous year from wardens and researchers, we were also treated to a illustrated talk by Nigel McCall: An Island Trip Around The World.

As well as welcoming Bea and Ed, and Richard and Giselle, the new wardens of Skomer and Skokholm, we also said our sad farewells to Chris Taylor.

We are already looking forward to 16 February 2014 when we return to the Tithe Barn,

See you there!
