Recent sightings

These reports have not been verified by Manx BirdLife. Records of scarce and rare birds (denoted by * after the species/sub-species name) are subject to ratification by the Manx Bird Records Committee (MRBC). Records of sensitive species during the nesting season are important and we welcome these, but will not be publicly displayed. The official Manx List follows the taxonomy and nomenclature of the IOC-led BOU British List.

Owl sightings: Records of all owl species are invaluable for conservation purposes and we encourage you to provide these to Manx BirdLife using the submission form. However, please note it is our policy not to publicly display any owl sightings on this noticeboard, in order to protect these photogenic birds from disturbance.

Please allow a few seconds for the up-to-date list of recent sightings to load. Thank you.
