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 the Isles of Scillys Council Childrens Services for hosting the 'Big Schools Birdwatch' at the Health and Wellbeing centre, where the learning room doubled up as an amazing bird hide.
We recorded 12 species, and a total of 70 birds, which is pretty impressive in an hour. We also looked at birds nests and storm petrels feathers in the classroom! The second most numerous bird recorded was the herring gull, so seabirds featured also!
