‘Date with Nature’ guided walks on Tresco has finished today, but will return in September. RSPB Guides Dave Flumm and Jeff Knott guided over 150 people during 24 walks during the week. They had stunning weather and lots of wonderful birds and other species to point out. In total they recorded 56 species, including our marvellous breeding seabirds and a visiting Iceland Gull and Honey buzzard!

 Thanks so much to our wonderful guides and to all the people who joined the walks.
