Jaclyn Pearson and Bob Dawson joined students and teaching assistant Ann Elgawad from Five Islands School on St Mary's for an exploration of neighbouring Old Town Bay and Peninnis Head. There was a particular focus on the challenges faced by Manx shearwaters and we even saw a small group flying offshore between Peninnis and Gugh.
