What to do if you find a stranded Manx Shearwater
At this time of year (September) please look out for ‘wrecked’ Manx Shearwater after stormy or foggy conditions along our coastline and either box them up safely and release them on the coast themselves at dusk (ideally from a cliff or high point so the birds can take flight) or call the contacts on the attached posters for help.
The Manx Shearwater and Light Pollution information
Information on ships, light pollution and young Manx Shearwaters, with tips if you come across a stranded bird. They will be fledging (flying away from the islands) from mid-August. Bright lights can confuse them and cause them to ground/crash. This content is aimed at maritime users.
