Clare Bird Sightings

Sunday 19th May 2013

Two venues were used for the annual Dawn Chorus Branch Outing. Mistle Thrush, Goldfinch and Greenfinch were the highlights at the People’s Park in Pery’s Square while a follow up visit to Westfields added Sedge Warbler, Willow Warbler and Whimbrel to the list.
A large crowd turned up at UL car park and were rewarded with a good variety species including good views of Cuckoo and Treecreeper. Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler and Sedge Warbler were also in song.
The first signs of summer today also brought out some scarce butterflies; a Wall Brown, the first in seen in the County in a number of years, and a Dingy Skipper were seen at the Aughinish sanctuary.
