Today, Project Manager, Jaclyn Pearson gave a community talk to the residents of St Agnes and Gugh, thanking them for their support and work so far and explaining this exciting time whereby Manx shearwater chicks whould be fledging from their nests on St Agnes and Gugh for the first time in living memory.  

We were joined by; our Italian visitors, who came to learn about biosecurity and community support, to implement back on the island of Tovolara, Sardinia; project volunteers and Seabird Ecologist Vickie Heaney. 

Thanks to everyone who came along and what a great facility the new Island Hall is!
