Isles of Scillly are an archipelago of some 150 islands and rocks, lying 28 miles
south west of Cornwall.
In the summer, people
visit the Isles to enjoy the unspoilt sandy beaches and clear blue seas.
autumn is an equally good time to visit the islands for a stunning wildlife experience
and some bird rarities.
Autumn offes fantastic opportunities for wildlife watchers
with many birds and animals migrating for the winter.
- Lots of animals are on the move during autumn from
deer to long distance travellers such as geese.
