Chough’s flamenco at Spanish Head

Yesterday delivered glorious weather here in the Isle of Man but this was just one bank holiday weekend sunny day, sandwiched in-between Saturday and today where it rained hard all day. We took the opportunity to explore down the south of the island and visited Spanish Head, overlooking the Calf of Man, the Chasms and Chicken Rock.  The choughs were out in their numbers and they danced above us with their loud distinctive “pee-yaa” calls.

The impressive purple heather covers most of the rocky landscape The footpath overlooks Cronk Karran, a Neolithical stone circle which is either a burial site or a hut circle.
