Today's group had the privilege of seeing 50+ Manx shearwaters flying past the headland, hearing Manx shearwaters in burrows as the seabird survey team were carrying our their work and seeing other amazing wildlife which the project could impact, inclosing moths and caterpillars, cuckoos and shrews! 

Thanks to all the people who came along. The top three words of the day were; amazing, inspirational, enjoyable
