Ballaugh

Got it!

A rare Full Haloween Blue Moon/Harvest moon as seen from Ballaugh on the evening of 31st October 2020 🇮🇲

A Blue Moon is the second Full Moon to appear in a month and is shown here as 100% illuminated.

The next time we’ll see a full moon on Halloween will be in 2039.

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.

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