THE ISLES WORLD SEABIRDS CALL HOME
Very recent studies have shown that many seabirds are amazing global travellers. For shearwaters, puffins, guillemots and others that breed on the Small Isles, those roamings can include waters from Greenland to South America, Newfoundland to Norway.
Kenny Taylor, whose work on seabirds has featured in several films and books, will reveal some of the ways that Eigg and neighbouring islands are connected to the wider seabird world. He’ll also share tales of puffins in northern Norway, where people at the Arctic Circle celebrate ‘puffin homecoming’ at precisely this time of spring.
