Seabird surveys in 2013 started

Volunteers helped make a count of nesting seabirds on the island of Annet at the end of May.  The islands supports nesting Manx shearwater, storm petrel and puffin. There were mixed fortunes, with nests of shag being much more successful than last year but herring gull numbers were down.
