A migrating Waxwing added to my Isle of Man Wildlife Page

These beautiful birds migrate South from Scandinavia around this time of year (actually they are quite early this year) and a number of them passage via the Isle of Man where they strip Rowan trees of their berries.

Spooyt Vane Chapel

This quaint chapel is reputed to be the smallest chapel on the Island, it was built as a school and later used as an Anglican mission, it is now sadly disused and in private ownership.

Milner’s Tower on Bradda Head in Port Erin was built in 1871 by public subscription as a memorial to the benefactor of Port Erin, William Milner, who did much to help the village fishermen and the poor.

Milner was a famous safemaker from Liverpool and the unusual shape of the Tower represents a key and a lock.
