Rum is home to a unique colony of Manx Shearwaters. The birds live in burrows high up on the island’s hills. By day the adult birds fly miles out to sea to hunt for fish before returning in the dark to feed their ravenous chick. Dougie joined researchers trying to find out more about the life of these unique birds for a night-time trek high into the Rum hills.
