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

Within just two years since the winter rat removal operation, we have great news - storm petrels are back breeding on St Agnes and Gugh!
Each year the project takes photos of the habitat and landscape at fixed points on St Agnes and Gugh and on a control site on Bryher. This is so we can see if there are any changes to the landscape habitats since the removal of rats. Thanks to team leader Tristan and all volunteers who assisted again this year.
This week Dave and Phil were the Guides and they saw lots of species, less Manxies and more Sooty out on the water!
