Safer for Storm Petrel

The Shiant Isles, in The Minch, look formidable enough in the winter light. However, this group wintered over as part of the RSPB's Shiant Isles Recovery Project with the intention of clearing the islands of non-native black rats.

According to a BBC Report, their work is showing signs of success with the return of Storm Petrels, which are not found in the same vicinity as rats.
