On the occasion of our winning the RSPB Nature of Farming Award, BBC wildlife cameraman and TV presenter, Gordon Buchanan said:

“I’m so pleased for Carolyne and Somerset Charrington. Treshnish Farm is a worthy winner of this prestigious UK-wide award. It’s a reflection too of the hard work of many other environmentally-friendly farmers on Mull and Iona who also go the extra mile for wildlife. This farm and many others are vital to the survival of our wildflowers, butterflies, moths and the famous Mull birds including corncrakes, white-tailed eagles and those all-important farmland finches and waders. What a place!”
