An insight into life on the Calf of Man


The Calf of Man is an islet off the southern-most tip of the Isle of Man. It is separated from the island by a narrow strip of water known as the Calf sound.

It is just one-and-a-half miles long by around a mile wide and at its highest point rises some 421 feet above sea level.

A Calf warden and ornithology warden live on the small island for most of the year.

BBC reporter Kelly Foran reports on life on the Calf of Man.
