Description

DESCRIPTION: Join professional Welsh photographer and lecturer, Andy Davies, for an unforgettable stay on Skomer Island. Opportunities for capturing memorable images abound at this UK wildlife hotspot and Andy will always be on hand to guide you the best locations at the optimum times and to help with a wide variety of techniques.

September is the time when the Atlantic grey seals are having their pups on the many coves around the island and there is mass influx of ravens. We will also have the opportunity to witness the Manx shearwaters returning after nightfall and the chicks fledging.
