Skokholm Island

Skokholm Island



Skokholm is located off the South Western tip of Pembrokeshire, and part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. It's famous for its breeding seabird colonies. Manx Shearwaters, Puffins, and Storm Petrels. There are frequent sightings of Harbour Porpoise, and Dolphins around its shores. "Skokholm" is a Norse word for 'Wooded Island' and was made famous by the naturalist Ronald Lockley, who set up the first bird observatory in Britain here in 1933. The lighthouse on the exposed western headland is now solar powered and is tinted red on the landward side to help prevent birds being dazzled at night.
