Recording of the Week: interview with Skomer Island warden

Cheryl Tipp, Wildlife Sounds Curator, writes:

Listen to an interview with David Saunders who, at the time of this recording, was warden of Skomer Island. Skomer is the second largest island in Wales after Anglesey and supports internationally important populations of seabirds such as the Manx Shearwater and Puffin. Lawrence Shove recorded David Saunders talking about the wildlife of Skomer on location in 1965.

'Recording of the Week' highlights gems from the Archival Sound Recordings website, chosen by British Library experts or recommended by listeners. This recording is part of British Wildlife Recordings


Listening Project recordings will be useful for people learning or improving their English. They would be more useful if there was a text transcript with them.
