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
Today saw the first of our Project Officers, Dr Vickie Heaney and Lydia Titterton deliver training in Manx shearwater playback methodology to community members. Community members would like to assist the recording of Manx shearwaters and storm petrel surveys on 'their patch' on St Agnes and Gugh for future years. Vickie and Lydia were very glad of the help and Lydia says that community member Joss Hicks (5 years old) found the most Manx shearwaters!
