Will Whittington has been a ‘seabird task force’ volunteer from the start of the winter operation  8th November 2013, and today left the project – thanks for all your hard work Will, we will miss you! 


Here the team can be seen on a rare evening off work at the top of St Agnes lighthouse, thanks to Fran and Carole Hicks for the treat!
