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
Seabird Ecologist, Dr Vickie Heaney was delighted that two Manx shearwaters were calling back from burrows which have not previously been occupied in recent years. They have previously been considered homes to rats (near rat runs), but now it seems they have found new tenants! Thanks to the volunteers who assisted the surveys in the rain!
