Our seasonal migrating Whooper Swans have arrived, at Ballacrye Road in Ballaugh (10 at present).

From approximately November until some time in March, these Whooper Swans and many more migrate from Iceland to spend the winter in the North West of England and some seasonally arrive at Ballaugh on the Isle of Man.

Lots of Fieldfare about at the moment all feasting on the berry trees in and around St Mary’s Church on Station Road in Ballaugh (and many other parts of the Island) 🇮🇲

All of these birds are migrating for the winter from Scandinavia.

The former Traie Meanagh open air swimming baths in Port Erin opened in June 1899 and hosted swimmers for more than 80 years, closing as baths in 1981. It was then turned into a fish farm which ceased to operate in 1990.

On image 2 you can see all the abandoned changing rooms and viewing areas, it must have been a hive of activity in it’s heyday!

Spooyt Vane Waterfall 🇮🇲

This is one of the highest waterfalls on the Isle of Man and is situated in a very isolated but tranquil setting in Glen Mooar, the name means ‘white spout’. Close by are the remains of a keeill, Cabbyl Pherick, and a priests cell. Spooyt Vane and Cabbyl Pherick are both accessed by ‘The Monks Road‘ this ancient road is at least 1500 years old and once linked up all the Island’s 220 keills.

Thank you to my friend Pheric Curphey for allowing us access onto his land.

A beautiful female Kingfisher on the river Neb in Peel.

Not the best of images as taken at quite a distance, a first ever sighting for me though ✔️
