Birdwatchers' rich outpost
Wednesday 15 July 1992
PUFFINS are the most colourful prey for birdwatchers and photographers on the island of Skokholm, three miles off the Pembrokeshire coast. The bird sanctuary, run by the Dyfed Wildlife Trust, permits only 15 visitors each week, from April to September. Guided by Michael Betts, the warden, and Susan Barclay, assistant warden, they observe not only the 6in-high (15cm) puffins, but two varieties of black-backed gulls, the Manx shearwater, razorbills, fulmars and many other species.
