The pupils from St Agnes school joined the Isles of Scilly Seabird Recovery Project to support Natura 2000 Day. We celebrated the day by visiting nesting Manx shearwater burrows and storm petrel nesting sites,  learning all about these important seabirds and how we can continue to protect them in our Natura 2000 site. 

In support of Natura 2000 day we did the 'butterfly symbol' to show support with the rest of Europe.
