Patrick Barkham takes us on a journey around some of Britain’s most intriguing small islands, meeting their residents – from puffins to party animals, Orkney voles to nuns. In this illustrated talk, he travels from small to ever-tinier islands in search of island life. Do small islands have big lessons for us on the mainland? Patrick is the award-winning author of The Butterfly Isles, Badgerlands and is The Guardian’s natural history writer. Critics have called Islander “charming and attractive”, “a complete delight” and “vibrant and full of fascinating detail”.
