In February 2017, we are privileged to have Claire Mucklow, RSPB Species and Habitats Officer and Fiona MacGillivray, RSPB Senior Research Assistant, visiting the island as part of their Chough research studies.

We are even more delighted that they have agreed to share with us some of their personal insights and firsthand experiences of this special species, gleaned from working with Choughs in Cornwall and on Islay. The evening will be hosted by Allen Moore, Co-ordinator of the Manx Chough Project.

Hear about the struggles and successes of this most charismatic of species and how it survives the harshness of island life at the northwestern extremity of its global distribution.

Please join us for tea/coffee and biscuits from 7.00pm. Presentations will start at 7.30pm, followed by an audience question and answer session. You'll also have the opportunity to chat with Claire and Fiona after the presentations.

Please mark the date in your diary. We do hope you can join us!
