Before becoming ranger for the Ross of Mull and Iona, Emily Wilkins spent 3 years living and working for the Iona Community at their outdoor centre at Camas. Prior to that, she worked two seasons for the National Trust for Scotland with the Ben Lomond Ranger Service. She is no stranger to the outdoors, nor to one of the UK's most rare and elusive species; the corncrake. Once found commonly across the UK, corncrakes now have a much restricted distribution, with South Mull and Iona being one of their last remaining strongholds. Join us to learn about this most fascinating of creatures - a bird notorious for its ability to be heard and not seen.
