Some system maintenance is being carried out to the Manx BirdLife website currently. If all goes well, it will be completed within the next few days.

On Friday 24th of October there will be a special film screening at 7.30pm at St James Dalby, to promote the DVD by Manx BirdLife: “The Isle of Man- A natural World “. From the comfort of our chairs, with a hot pot supper and rhubarb crumble to follow, we’ll get to see the wide range of wildlife that choose our seas, glens and hills to be their Island home. Come and join us as local naturalist Chris Sharpe offers us an insiders year-round view of our beautiful haven. With the luxury of watching anything from the majestic basking sharks, or guillemots and razor bills on our shores, to the choughs on the coast and hen harriers as they glide over our moorland. This is a DVD that features all aspects of our Islands wildlife and offers us an insight into the natural world on our back doorstep!
All proceeds from the admission go towards the new Breast Care Unit at Nobles Hospital and the Manx overseas charity School for Uganda as well as St James Church & Restoration fund.
Copies of the DVD are available at local bookshops across the Island or online at:
