Rathlin Island in Northern Ireland is a great place to see stunning sea birds in spring.


Isle of Skye

  • Skye has been described as 'Scotland in miniature' because of its diverse range of scenery and wildlife habitats.

"Let's be honest - we're lucky in the UK. Where else in the world could you experience so many islands, so close to home and with such a variety of wildlife?


"Spring is when islands are bursting with life and energy - and this is a great season to watch wildlife. So go on, hop on a boat and get out there."
