The Common Shag is a familiar sight around the shores of the Isle of Man
During 2010, BBC North West Tonight will be focusing its long lenses on the region's wildlife.
'A Walk on the Wild Side' is a year-long project showcasing creatures great and small in the North West region.
If you love nature and want to tell us about what you've seen, there are plenty of ways to get involved.
We're asking you to send in your photographs, videos and sightings of anything from beetles and bats to ducklings and doormice.
Presented by Dianne Oxberry, Walk on the Wild Side will feature on BBC North West Tonight at least once a week during 2010.
Because of the huge range and beauty of the Island's wildlife we would love you to help us get the Isle of Man involved in the project.
