Today we guided the St Agnes primary school base on a field trip to hear the Manx shearwaters in the burrows filmed by BBC Autumn watch. The Manx shearwaters incubating eggs in the burrows responded to call-back which delighted the students and teachers! Pupils asked excellent questions about the project and how they can protect their seabird for years to come
