Recent sightings

Please note: these reports have not been verified by Manx BirdLife.

Records of scarce and rare species/sub-species are subject to ratification by the Manx Bird Records Committee (MRBC) and British Birds Rarities Committee (BBRC), and are denoted by an asterisk* after the species/sub-species name. Records of sensitive species during the nesting season are important and we welcome these, but will not be publicly displayed. As of January 2018, we have adopted the taxonomy and nomenclature of the revised BOU British List. See the official Manx List for details.

Rare/scarce breeding birds: If you have submitted a record and are concerned that it is not displayed below, please check the list of 'sensitive' breeding birds for which records are withheld from publication during the nesting season.
