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
Thanks to RSPB staff and volunteers for assisting the 'pop up lab’ pitfall session today. We sorted through 170 pitfalls, categorising the invertebrates. We are comparing change in fauna and flora prior to, and after the removal of rats on St Agnes and Gugh. We also have samples from control sites on Bryher.
We sorted many woodlice, spiders, springtails and much more.
