Since his childhood, writer Adam Nicholson has known the remote islands in Scotland. He tells us of how fascinating he found it, even then, to watch the seabird colonies. How every summer they returned to the islands in flocks. The documentary accompanies him to the same places he once visited and shows us what they look like today.
