Calf of Man

Bird Sanctuary in Port Erin & Port St Mary

This small island just off Cregneash is on one of western Britain's major bird migration routes, and 33 species breed annually here, including Manx shearwaters, kittiwakes, razorbills and shags. Other species normally observed on the island include peregrines, hen harriers, choughs and ravens. It's been an official bird sanctuary since 1939. Gemini Charter runs birdwatching trips to the island from Port St Mary.
