Skokholm Island 360 view

Here's a 360 deg view of one of my favourite and closest Islands, Skokholm. which some of you may have seen on tv recently called, Ronald Lockley's Dream Island.

Did you watch the dream Island series Dhd, I thought episode five was the best, when they visited The Smalls and Grassholm, I'd heard the story of the dead lighthouse keeper before, and the failed germwarfare on Skokholm, which puzzled the boffins.
Here's a link to episode 4 and 5 for anyone interested.

There's been a few changes since last season, inluding new wardens Richard Brown and Giselle Eagle, they should be use to Island though as they've been living on Bardsey Island, N Wales for the past couple of years. here's an interview with them on BBC Breakfast this morning.

Yes it was an interesting watch and good to learn a bit more about the Island too, I found the link for the other episodes now. so you up for a fishing trip by the Wild Goose race this year?

Yes, looking forward to it already. The weather was so awful this year, I only made it out past the monkey pole once or twice.

Monkey pole, we call it the Lollipop this side of da river.
Same here though, not out half as much as other years, I made my way round to St Brides bay a few times though, and came across these nutters in fancy dress riding horses and and!! blowing up Marlass sands.
