The Manx Shearwater on Lundy

Southern HN & Tucker BW (1944) British Birds 38:122-129

The status of the Manx Shearwater (Puffinus p. puffinus) on Lundy has long been problematical. It has been repeatedly stated to breed, but only very few observers have been able to obtain positive proof of this and no one has succeeded in establishing that it does so in any large numbers in spite of large flocks being seen off the island and much calling heard at night.
