Today we were joined by BBC Springwatch, that’s LIVE to three million viewers!

The LIVE pieces featured LIVE call back from a Manx shearwater in a burrow on and a Scilly shrew St Agnes. The broadcast also showed footage taken of Manxies and shrews during the week.

Big thanks to everyone at the BBC for showcasing this project.
