The Raven is a bird of legend and superstition and there are a number of places on the Island which include Raven in their names. The Island has a strong Viking element in its history and Odin, the Norse God, was, according to mythology, accompanied by two Ravens. During the Millennium Year of 1979, a replica of a Viking longship was sailed from Norway to the Isle of Man by a mixed Norwegian and Manx crew. The longship, which is now preserved on the Island, is called “Odin’s Raven”.

I have recently extended my photographic portfolio to include many of my Isle of Man wildlife and nature photographs.  Therefore I have decided to set up another small category on this website amongst all of my other Manx Scenes to include many of my favourite wildlife and nature images.

The link is above in the menu bar and titled *Manx Wildlife so please have a look and let me know what you think.

All of my Isle of Man wildlife images have been captured responsibly with the welfare of all birds and wildlife uppermost and in line with the Codes of Conduct for Birdwatchers and Photographers as published by Manx Bird Life website, which also has a web link to the Isle of Man Governments code for Birdwatchers and Photographers web page.

Enjoy, Peter
