A comprehensive census of the Isle of Man's seabird population is nearing completion, conservationists have said.
Manx BirdLife said the project, the first of its kind since 1999, "will reveal the fortunes of 17 coastal and marine species".
More than 10,000 birds have been logged in the study, which has involved 947 miles (1,525km) of boat travel.
A charity spokesman added that the findings will "underpin all future bird conservation strategies".
