Manx Shearwaters

Manx Shearwaters

The Manx Shearwater colony on Copeland Islands off Belfast Lough holds more than 1.7% of the world population. This is the only known colony in Northern Ireland, though historically they nested on Rathlin Island, in North Antrim. It is hoped a project to remove rats and ferrets could bring about their return.
