The second of a two-day seabird census in Jenny’s Cove was undertaken today with the help from RSPB staff. The census considers every cliff face and aims to count as many of the seabirds in the Jenny’s Cove area. To confirm our findings, results will be posted in a subsequent update on our Latest news tab. However, for you keen readers, totals just for Jenny’s look really positive so far, so let’s hope tomorrow will be similar.
