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 abundant information for 150 species. Beautiful hand-drawn illustrations and full colour maps sit alongside the survey 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. A beautiful special edition of the volume, casebound and in a slipcase is also available for GBP100.00.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Beautiful hand-drawn illustrations and full colour maps sit alongside the survey 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. The methods that have been developed are very sophisticated ... The Atlas is both quantitative - that is knowledge of bird abundance in different parts of the Island is collected, rather than just presence or absence - and year-round. Few atlases have attempted to do this. -- David Gibbons
The finished book is a fascinating treasure trove of the distribution and population levels for 150 species. * Wednesday Week *
