Thanks to the Council of the Isles of Scilly for supporting the activity and to all the yong people who joined the activity. 

We saw; 

- 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!)
