Calf of Man, Isle of Man

Calf of Man, a quaint islet nestled in the Irish Sea, was once privately owned but has since been gifted to the National Trust, recognizing its significance as a haven for nesting sea birds. The island plays host to 33 different species of seabirds during breeding season, each bringing their unique charm.

While the island remains free from permanent human settlement, it does welcome researchers and ornithologists who stay for brief periods to study its avian inhabitants.
