"Doughnutters"!

A storm at sea in 2014 resulted in the loss of HP printer cartridges which are being found washed up on UK and European coastlines; they've even been found, and are still being found, in Scilly.

It is estimated that 35.8 million plastic bottles are used and discarded in the UK each day, with only a little over half being recycled. Sadly bottle parts and caps are some of the commonest items of marine litter found on our beaches so the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust has taken the baton (or should that be re-usable bottle?) from Island’s Partnership to organise the 2017 Great Scilly Spring Clean. The aim is to collect as much debris as possible, with a special focus on plastic bottles.

Every year Scilly's business and residents get together to spruce up the Islands following the winter storms, and this year we've had our fair share; since Christmas we’ve had visits from Frank, Gertrude, Imogen and Jake. So the volunteers who turned out at the weekend for the Great Scilly Spring Clean 2016 definitely had their work cut out!

The Big Garden Birdwatch is taking place on the 30th and 31st January this year; it started as a children’s activity in 1979, and the same simple format is still in use today. That means that 36 years worth of records have been collected for scientists to analyse! So why not join in? It's really simple and easy to do and only takes up an hour of your time!
