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
This year we boarded the Spirit again on the Wednesday afternoon ‘seabird safari’ boat trip with Darren Mason. Please thank him for his knowledge and his talk that Wednesday afternoon trip. It was a real treat as I thought the boat trip was only going to Annet, but we went all the way out to the Bishop to see the seabirds as we did in 2009. I had my 5 year old grandson Luke with me on board but he who fell asleep before we reached the Bishop!
I have been a member of the RSPB at Thetford in Norfolk although I live in Bedfordshire, and continue to support the work of the RSPB including this project on the Isles of Scilly.
I hope you enjoy this photo and I hope to return to St Agnes next May 2015 to continue to learn about the important seabirds.
