MANX BIRD REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING 27TH MARCH 2016

Fantastic week for summer migrants starting to arrive.

We are experience some problems with the back end of our website which is making impossible to publish the sightings in our usual way.

Please bear with us while we try our best to cope with this issue.

MANX BIRD REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING 20th March 2016

Still no summer migrants… this week we had with 97 records being sent in from 9 observers (where is everyone?) reporting 48 different species with a total count above 1711 birds. 

…but no pictures…

What’s special about this week?

  • Rarities: Little Egret, Goosander
  • Whooper Swan, it seems that they are still arround after all… 
  • Golden Plover, 338 individuals is probably one of the highest counts for this winter. between 500 to 2,000 birds will winter on manx territory (Manx Bird Atlas, 2007)
  • Bar-tailed Godwit, up to 10 birds are believed to winter in the Island although it can be seen during all months of the year (Manx Bird Atlas, 2007) .
