Rathlin Island lies just six miles off the coast of Northern Ireland but a short ferry crossing will transport you to another world.
Join RSPB NI warden and islander Liam McFaul to explore the Roonivoolin reserve on the southern arm of the island.
This haven for nature is home to a rich variety of birds and wildlife, from common blue butterflies to wildflowers, soaring birds of prey to Northern Ireland’s only family of chough.
Along the way you might also spot seals lazing in Mill Bay or, if you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse of an elusive Irish hare.
You’ll also be able to enjoy stunning scenery as far as the eye can see, including views of Fair Head and the Mull of Kintyre.
Booking is essential by calling 028 9049 1547 or emailing Ciara.McElroy@rspb.org.uk.
