There is just a month left now until the seabirds such as Manx shearwaters and Lesser black Backed gulls return to Scilly and IOSWT reduce the monitoring tools laid out to detect rats over winter. 

Here on St Helens today, Gemma has been placing peanut butter monitoring blocks just in case rats dont have a sweet tooth for chocolate wax blocks and prefer peanut flavour.
