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
The auks, gulls, shags and many other seabirds have now started to fledge, but thats not the end of our sebird survey season, the count now moves to counting 'apparently occupied sites' of the enigmatic storm petrels. Nesting within bolder beaches and in stone walls, play back of their calls is used to survey their numbers and piece of rope makes out 2m transects.
So if you see the team out and about in our orange hats with blue rope, you know what we are up to!
