Recent sightings 2018

Firecrest

This report is compiled from unverified records of birds and other wildlife received through Manx BirdLife's online submissions form.

Records of scarce and rare birds are subject to ratification by the Manx Birds Rarities Committee (MRBC) and British Birds Rarities Committee (BBRC). Sensitive records (e.g. rare/scarce breeding species between 01 March and 31 August) are important and we welcome these, but will not be displayed for obvious reasons. As of January 2018, we have adopted the taxonomy and nomenclature of the revised BOU British List. See the Manx List for details.

Thank you for your records and photographs.
