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
Guides Jen and Cat pointed out the seabirds and marine life today.
The project has been carrying out land bird surveys this weekend surrounded by the gigs as part of the World Gig Championships.
Volunteer Amy Horn Norris took this wonderful picture of a Greenshank when on the islands - lovely.
They may not be the best photos taken by Jaclyn yesterday evening, but the Manx shearwaters and puffins of St Agnes and Annet are certainly back!
Jaclyn Pearson attended RSPB Members Weekend at the University of York. She gave a talk alongside Helen Booker, South West England Conservation Officer for the Lundy Seabird Recovery Project. They chatted to the lovely members and thanked them for their ongoing support.
