Brett Westwood is surrounded by seabirds and has a close encounter with a very rare vole.

Brett Westwood travels to the island of Skomer off the Pembrokeshire coast in search of burrow-nesting puffins. As well as these 'clowns of the air', he finds an island carpeted in pink sea campion, fading bluebells, and lime green bracken. Away from the cliffs which are bustling with sea birds, he enjoys his very first encounter with the Skomer vole, which as its name suggests, is endemic to this island. Producer Sarah Bunt
