Chris Sharpe has recently taken on the role of Editor, following on from Allen Moore's many years of sterling effort. Chris is a long-standing member of the Society, author of the Manx Bird Atlas and brings to the role an extensive knowledge of the birds of the Island and further afield, having been Warden at Landsort Bird Observatory in Sweden for five years.
Peregrine is important for recording our Island's rich birdlife—and it also features natural history articles which further our understanding of nature conservation in the Isle of Man.
