The team heads to the Isles of Scilly, where Ellie Harrison finds out about the problem of rats and the devastating effect they have on the local seabird population. She also visits the privately owned island of Trescoe, to hear how a programme to eradicate the rodents affects the recently imported red squirrels. Matt Baker goes flying with ducklings - boarding a plane with 50 birds destined for a duck farm on Scilly - and back on the mainland, Tom Heap looks at the dangers involved in farming, as well as ways to make it safer, and Adam Henson visits a goat farm.
