Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust volunteers are busy analysing pitfall contents today. This is part of the work the project is doing to understand the wider impacts of the rat removal on other species of wildlife. 

The pitfalls have been collected over four habitat across St Agnes, Gugh and a control site on Bryher. Tomorrow we start to set the pitfall’s back up for the June monitoring work!
