Clare Bird Sightings

Maghera Mountain

Maghera Mountain
These hills are located North of Tulla and East of Feakle.
They are one of the few parts of Clare where Red Grouse can still be seen. The heather covered hills with newly planted spruce plantations play home to a small variety of upland birds. 
Spring and early summer are the most productive times to visit this area.
Birds  Siskin and Common Crossbills breed here along with Skylark, Meadow Pipit, Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler, Goldcrest,  Spotted Flycatcher, Merlin, Hen Harrier, Long-eared Owl, Snipe, Woodcock and Red Grouse.
The small mountain streams hold breeding Dipper and Grey Wagtail. Golden Plover and Dunlin are regular in spring, feeding out on open blanket bog.

Access There are many different routes up the mountain. A recommended walk
