Patrick Barkham takes us on a journey around some of Britain’s most intriguing small islands, meeting their wild 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 the essence 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 Coastlines and a natural history writer for The Guardian. His latest book, Islander, won the 2018 National Geographic Traveller magazine Book of the Year Award.
