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
The seabird liaison group meeting was held at Trenoweth, St Marys. Members discussed the Seabird Recovery Project amongst other seabird conservation matters on the islands. Guest speaker Julian Evans gave an update on the work he has been doing to understand why shags use rafting behaviour here in the waters between the islands in Scilly. Shags are another seabird species vulnerable to rats on land as their chicks and eggs can be predated. We welcomed Kate Sugar, Marine Lead Advisor Natural England to the group.
