Clare Bird Sightings

Sunday 19th May 2013

At the Clare Branch of BWI Dawn Chorus outing to the Burren this morning a number of Blackcap and Whitethroat were heard singing in a chorus dominated by Blackbird song. A Cuckoo in full voice gave lovely close up views for a long period and he took little notice of several pairs of Meadow Pipit as they mobbed him. Two male Yellowhammer were seen along with Wheatear and Common Gull. Several Willow Warbler sang in the hazel bushes. A Barn Owl was seen hunting prey at Drumcliffe Cross in Ennis by people on their way to the outing at 4.30a.m.
