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
Project volunteer Martin Prothero is a 'sound man' whom the school children of St Agnes were delighted to meet. They also met 'Bob' - Martins sound dummy invention! We took Bob to the Manx shearwater burrows to capture sound of the Manxies and other birds which we recorded on route (12 species in total). Thanks to Martin for teaching us how important sound is in nature.
Thanks also to Lydia for telling us all about lichen and how is can denote where storm petrels live.
You can here the interview from the school children about which species of seabird they saw with Jaclyn here.
