Wildlife gets stamp of approval


The Isle of Man Post Office is issuing a collection of 10 stamps next week to illustrate the area’s wide variety of wildlife.

Manx photographer Brian Liggins, who was born in Douglas on the Isle of Man, became interested in wildlife as a youngster when he spent a lot of time on his grandparents farm. Self-taught, he first took up photography about 11 years ago and has since gained a lot of knowledge and experience.

Brain said: “I enjoy the challenge of taking pictures of wildlife as it is always on the move so you have to be ready and focused to capture the moment. I spend hours waiting and trying to get the right shot. I travel all over the Island to picture different species. The light plays a big part in capturing the perfect image.”

Isle of Man Wildlife is available as Set and Sheet Set, Presentation Pack and First Day Cover.
