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
Today we caught up with our local MP Derek Thomas, Manx Shearwater Champion
Thanks so much to Seabird Heritage Volunteers Chris, Lou, Tim and Rick for assisting with the design and installment of the signs on St Agnes and on the sand bar from Gugh, these will help keep the islands rat-free as visitors can learn about biosecurity.
The weather has improved for 'Date With Nature - week 2'. We welcome Paul, Dave and Stephanie as the walk guides this week.
