We need YOUR help to protect our important seabird heritage
The largest numbers of Manx shearwaters 'rafting' on the water at sunset before they swap incubation shifts in their burrows on Annet, St Agnes and Gugh has been seen tonight. Over 1000 Manx shearwaters were recorded by the team and local wildlife guide Will Wagstaff, onboard the evening boat trip 'Shearwater Special'. There was one Sooty shearwater amongst the group too. What a sight to see, it was very special indeed!
