Today Year 2 Conservation and Countryside Management students from Duchy College, Cornwall learnt all about the project, visiting Manx shearwater nesting sites, learning about ongoing biosecurity and viewing the nesting colonies of kittiwakes and Lesser black-backed gulls on Gugh. 

The three most popular words from the feedback were; interesting, enjoyable, fun!

We agree learning about seabirds is always fun!
