RSPB staff Adrian Oates and Ruth Sharman from the finance team (the people who ensure we have the funds to allow the project to happen!) and Natural England's David Appleton visited the project this week. We visited the Manx shearwaters burrows on St Agnes and Gugh, talked to members of the local community and the volunteers currently working on the project (alongside all our meetings!)

Thanks for visiting and for your ongoing support!
