Today we were joined by a German TV crew to film the project as part of a 'paradise islands' documentary. We hope they got our best sides, the seabirds need not worry, they always look good. 


Thanks to 'Island Partnership' for suggesting they film the project, St Agnes Boating and project volunteer Randolph Hessing for assisting translation between the crew and Jaclyn!
