A Glimpse of Life on Lambay Island
[Video not to be reproduced without prior permission from Sheena Jolley. All rights reserved.]
Lambay Island, lying 3 miles off the coast of north County Dublin, is one of the most important seabird colonies in Ireland. It plays host to Kittiwakes, Razorbills, Gulls, Puffins, Manx Shearwaters, Shell Duck, Cormorants and Shags during the breeding season each year. It has established the largest Guillemot colony in Ireland and,since 2007, a steadily growing Gannet colony. Fallow Deer, Wallabies, Grey Seals and Common Seals also add interest to the island.
Lambay Island also has an important history. The 16th century medieval castle was transformed by Sir Edwin Lutyens for The Hon. Cecil Baring, 3rd Lord Revelstoke, who bought the island in 1904. The gardens were designed by Gertrude Jekyll.
This video captures the magic, sounds and wildlife of this very special island.
