Isle of Man puffins: Birds return to island after three decades

Still Waters

Posted (IP: Staff) ·

Puffins have returned to the Calf of Man for the first time in more than 30 years with the help of a special programme using model "decoys" of the seabirds to help lure them back.

It is though the population had declined due to an increase in brown rats, which prey on eggs.

Now there is evidence of the puffins forming a colony on the Calf after they were spotted carrying nesting material.

Warden Aron Sapsford described their return as "a piece of history".
