Description

Join us for a lunchtime lecture on RSPB Scotland's Shiant Isles Recovery Project.

Hear from owner of the Shiant Isles and celebrated author Adam Nicolson about his experience of restoring the Shiants as a safe haven for seabirds.

Laura Bambini - Project Supervisor for the Shiants project at RSPB Scotland - will also provide an insight into the challenges of life on the islands; from abseiling down 100m high cliffs to storm force 12 winds and enduring the wettest winter since records began!

After the lecture, copies of Adam Nicolson’s book The Seabird’s Cry will be available for purchase and signing by the author. Each chapter of The Seabird's Cry is dedicated to a different seabird and beautifully illustrated by Kate Boxer. The book was a huge success at this year's Edinburgh Book Festival.

The Shiant Isles Recovery Project is an initiative to remove non-native black rats from the isles in order to provide safe breeding sites for Scotland’s globally important seabird colonies. It is part funded by the EU LIFE+ programme and is a partnership between RSPB Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and the Nicolson family, who have been the custodians of the Shiant Isles for three generations.
