The Manx Bird Atlas project undertook the first comprehensive survey of all wild bird species to be found in the Isle of Man. During the five-year programme, professional ornithologists surveyed the entire island using new and innovative methods. It was the most detailed study of its kind ever undertaken in Europe, generating abundance and distribution data for 150 species.

Beautiful hand-drawn illustrations and full-colour maps sit alongside the survey results. Whether you are an amateur or professional ornithologist, resident or just visiting the island, this is your definitive guide to the birds of the Isle of Man.

The Isle of Man Seabird Census: Report on the census of breeding seabirds in the Isle of Man 2017-18

This was the first comprehensive survey of the Island’s seventeen species of breeding seabird for nearly twenty years. Previous censuses have been conducted in 1985-86 by Allen S. Moore and by Chris M. Sharpe and Aron Sapsford in 1999, the latter as part of the Manx Bird Atlas studies.

The 2017-18 Census team logged nearly 1,000 boat-hours in which they travelled the equivalent of ten times around the Island recording more than 10,000 seabirds and their nests.
