The ferry departing from the small harbour on Lundy

Photo special: Lundy Island

Lundy is a small British island, marking the point where the Atlantic becomes the Bristol Channel. It’s a lovely destination for wildlife lovers, as it’s a breeding site for many seabirds, including puffins. The waters surrounding it have been protected for 40 years, making it one of the best spots for diving in the UK.

Here are a few photos from my trip there a few years ago.

  1. I’ve never been there myself but the conservationists sure know how to look after that place. Some very delicate decisions have had to be taken in order to look after their precious seabird colonies, for instance. Our lands have been altered so radically over the years, in that we now need to land manage more than ever before. At risk of sounding like a politician need but the phrase “together we can make a difference” has never been a truer description, when it comes to modern day nature conservation. Do you agree with my take on this, or am I way off track here?

    Kind Regards
