Project Officer Lydia Titterton saw her first Manxie of the year from the Sillonian ferry on 16th March.

Then Volunteer Ed Marshall saw signs of Manx sheawaters back on Tresco on 25th March.

Today Lydia heard three Manx shearwaters calling back from the burrows at Peninnis, St Mary's.

Its good to have you back Manxies!
