Calf of Man: The island trying to eradicate rats

Rats have destroyed a colony of tens of thousands of ground-nesting birds on a tiny island in the Irish Sea.

And they've got an ingenious plan to encourage birds like puffins back.

Located off the southern tip of the Isle of Man, the island has been a bird observatory since 1959.
