Colin travels to the Inishkea islands to film the Grey Seal, explores the world of fungi in Wicklow.

Braving treacherous seas, Colin Stafford Johnson travels to the uninhabited Inishkea islands to film the Grey Seal, Ireland's largest mammal. At the risk of being stranded in the middle of an Atlantic storm, he resolves to sit it out, and complete his mission.

In Wicklow, Colin joins in with an annual mushroom forage, and discovers the culinary delights of edible fungi, while learning an important lesson about certain varieties which are better left untouched.

From there, Colin takes his daughter Sylvie to the Saltees Island, five miles off the Wexford coast to shows her what inspired him to become a wildlife cameraman in the first place - Ireland's largest natural bird sanctuary.
