Dr Vickie Heaney and volunteers have been surveying the kittiwake colony on St Agnes. Last year there were 36 nests and 38 chicks fledged, we are hoping for a smilar success this year, and the removal of rats means there is one less pressure upon them. Currently kittiwake colonies across the UK face huge challenges from climate change and related food sources.
