Manx Bird Atlas , Atlas of Breeding & Wintering Birds on Isle of Man
Edited by Chris Sharpe
Published; Liverpool University Press
First Edition 2007
The Manx Bird Atlas project was established to undertake the first comprehensive survey of all bird species to be found on the Island during both the winter and summer. During the five-year programme of work professional ornithologists surveyed the entire Island using new and innovative survey techniques. The survey, which ran from 1998 to 2003, is the most detailed of its kind ever undertaken in Europe. Such methods have generated data that provides distribution and abundance information for 150 species.
Beautiful hand-drawn illustrations and full-colour maps sit alongside the survey results in this landmark publication. Whether you are an amateur or professional ornithologist, or simply interested in the natural beauty of the Isle of Man, this long-awaited book provides a fascinating account of the Island’s bird life.
‘There is little doubt that this project is fast becoming a world leader among bird monitoring and survey work of this kind.’
Dr David Gibbons, Head of the Conservation Science Unit of the RSPB
