When first thinking about Handa island I was particularily interested in the people who lived there prior to leaving and emigrating from the island in 1848. I also began to think about the present inhabitants the birds each with their own behaviour and characteristics. The human population emigrated but a current population of birds migrate to the island every year. It seems that the population emigrated to Cape Breton and I discovered that there is also a bird island there also. This lead to developing ideas of trying to link with Cape Breton in some way.
