We are delighted to announce that our wonderful Skomer Island, Pembrokeshire has been nominated in the BBC Wildlife Magazine Awards to win the ‘Best Nature Reserve’ category.

These annual awards are now in their eighth year and recognises the very best of the British countryside.

Skomer is an internationally important wildlife and heritage site located less than a mile off the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast. Well known for its Puffins, yet there is so much more to the bird paradise including Manx Shearwaters, Dolphins, Harbour Porpoises, Atlantic Grey Seal, Razorbills, Gannets, Fulmars and the unique Skomer Vole. The island is surrounded by some of the richest waters for wildlife off the British Isles from delightfully coloured sea slugs to magnificent cetaceans.

During spring the island is covered in a display of beautiful Bluebells so vast that the whole island appears blue! The old fields, the valleys, the cliff tops. No part of the island is spared from this bluebell explosion.  A shade of pink is added to the island’s colour during the summer as swathes of Campion cloak the landscape.

Skomer is truly a wonderful place and needs your vote!
