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
Tonight we recorded the first Manx shearwater chicks of the year on St Agnes and Gugh as they 'stargazed' outside their burrows ahead of migration.
Thanks to Naomi Stratton (Natural England), volunteer Nina, and community residents for assisting the survey. We saw 4 chicks in total on this first survey,and what a night for them to fix the stars to return to their natal burrows in years to come. Pictures by Chris Prowse.
