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
They had 341 nests which is comparable to last year's total of 355, which is great news. It is quite incredible that so many gull nests are in the patch of grass, scrub and heath in the centre of Gugh. Most nests had 3 eggs and many were just starting to hatch in the lovely sunny weather. Thanks to the volunteers for helping, we were in and out of the survey area quickly due to their help - and the gulls settled back down within seconds of us leaving!
