Thanks to all the help of our wonderful volunteers who came along and worked hard in the October heat, and to the 'birders'  on St Agnes and Gugh who assisted us inbetween 'twitching'! Thanks to the Council of the the Isles of Scilly for supporting the costs of picking up the rubbish and disposing off it back on St Mary's.
