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
Thanks to the Council of the Isles of Scilly for supporting the activity and to all the yong people who joined the activity.
- Evidence of shrews in 9 out of 10 tracking tunnels (tiny footprints!)
- 14 species of birds
- Over 10 eels in the stream
We all decided that Scilly shrews really are fab animals and they live in fantatsic habitats. Thanks also to the Scilly shrews for leaving tasty chocloate treats for us too! (not choc wax! but real human chocolate!)
