Wildlife of the Channel Islands by Sue Daly


Cradled in the bay of St Malo, the Channel Islands form an archipelago between the northern coast of Brittany and the western coast of Normandy. The wildlife here is a startling blend of the common and the exotic and that no other place in Britain can claim a flora and fauna so rich. A marvellous mix of plants and animals from much further south thrives alongside those from northern Europe making this one of nature’s most dramatic crossroads. The Islands are well known as a tourist destination and a centre of international finance, but I believe their real value lies in their remarkable natural history.
