Visitor Wins Award For Article On St Martin’s Wildlife

A Scilly visitor has come third in a national wildlife writing competition for an essay written following a trip to St Martins.

Jennifer Hunt, who lives in Dorset, comes to the islands regularly and submitted the article to the BBC Wildlife Nature Writer of the Year competition.

It was inspired by a trip to St Martin’s ten years ago and featured aspects of the island like the white sand, turquoise sea as well as the bird and insect life.

Jennifer has been successful in this competition previously and was runner-up two years ago for a piece she wrote about woodlands.

She wins a selection of wildlife books.
