Trevor Fishlock introduces us to the magic of Dream Island – the red sandstone island of Skokholm four miles off the Pembrokeshire coast.

Home to the puffin and many other mysterious and exotic species, this is a secret slice of paradise captured by a documentary team over two years.

Episode Five:

Skokholm’s many rabbits are all but invisible to the bird watching fraternity, but island pioneer Ronald Lockley probably paid them too much attention, seeking to capitalise on the price of their skins. They survived, and went on to play a bit part in Watership Down.

Meanwhile Jerry and the team visit Grassholm and the Smalls, seeing dolphins and Gannetts along the way.

Episode Four:

Trevor Fishlock continues his tour of Skokholm, one of the UK's most spectacular havens for sea birds.
