This report is compiled from records of birds and other wildlife received through the online submissions form.

These reports are not verified by Manx BirdLife. Records of scarce and rare birds are subject to ratification by the Manx Rare Birds Committee (MRBC) and British Birds Rarities Committee (BBRC).

Thank you to everyone who has contributed records and photographs. As well as birds, we welcome records of all wildlife and will make these freely available to the recognised recording and conservation organisations.

Sensitive records (e.g. of rare and scarce breeding bird species between 01 March and 31 August) are important and we welcome these, but will not be displayed on the public sightings noticeboard for obvious reasons.

Records are shown from July 2017. (See menu above for earlier records)
