2013 St Agnes Boating Wildlife Safari trips were a huge success!

Thank you to local business St Agnes Boating for supporting our volunteer live interpreter Darren Mason onboard the ‘Wildlife Safari trips to Annet and the Western Rocks’ this year. Darren pointed out the seabirds which can be seen around these islands to the many visitors who were keen to learn about our fascinating birdlife on the open water. In September many of the seabirds (including the Manx shearwaters and storm petrel) had migrated after the breeding season, but diving gannets could still be seen. Darren will return onboard the Wildlife Safari trips next year.  Thanks to both St Agnes Boating and our wonderful volunteer Darren for showing so many people these truly amazing birds this summer.
