The Natural History of
West Cork

An Introduction


*** OUT OF PRINT ***

Written by John Akeroyd

Photography by Robbie Murphy

Perhaps you haven’t been to Sherkin Island before, or maybe you’re coming back again, as many people do. This book will introduce you to some of the wonderful wildlife and flowers on this beautiful and peaceful island, which lies just 10 minutes by ferry across the busy little harbour of Baltimore, West Cork. We hope the island’s natural history brings you as much pleasure as it brings us.
