A special place... The Isles of Scilly are one of only two places in England where Manx Shearwaters breed
Under threat...The Isles of Scilly hold 3,000 fewer pairs of breeding seabirds than 25 years ago
We need YOUR help to protect our important seabird heritage
Last night Vickie and Holly carried out a 'chick-check walk' and with the help of Seabird Heritage Volunteer Fran Hicks, recorded 2 more storm petrel chicks cheeping from bolders in nest sites.
This brings us to 43 Manx shearwater chicks and 5 storm petrel chicks recorded so far. We may not record many Manx sheaarwaters now as they will have mostly departed for winter migration, but storm petrels can continue to fledge into October, so we will keep recording!
