Isle of Wight walk recommended

The Isle of Wight has been singled out for walkers in a national newspaper.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Robin Lang, head warden at St Catherine's Point, said there is often some interesting birdlife to be spotted on the island.

He recommended walkers on Isle of Wight holidays take their binoculars with them when they are out and about in order to see what they can spot.

"Peregrines, ravens and fulmars nest on the cliffs and in the spring and autumn migrating warblers shelter and feed in the scattered trees and bushes," he said.

Mr Lang added that although the walk from St Catherine's Point - which was named the newspaper's walk of the week - is not long, it can be steep and slippery when it has been raining.

He therefore recommended tourists on Isle of Wight holidays ensure they have suitable hiking boots for the trek.

A good time to try the walk could be during the Autumn Walking Festival in October.
