My accommodation on Skokholm - there are four single rooms and one twin room inside the cottage as well as a large common room with a log burner fire. The is an office for the Wardens in the attic space. Believed to have been built in around 1760 at the cost of £150.00.

Taken on Skokholm Island. Not a particularly good shot, but it does illustrate how big a Great Black-backed Gull is and how brutal they can be. They quite enjoy a rabbit supper.........
