The calm and sunny weather which the Isles of Scilly are known for is back again today. Some of the bait stations along coast lines which were disturbed in the storm are all back in place and the 'seabird task force' volunteers assisted the community to tidy up areas after the storm. Next, the team will help with a community beach clean which brought a lot of plastic back onto the shores and nearby fields.
