|Brent Geese flock at Soldier's Point, Dundalk|
A joint outing with the Monaghan Branch to Dundalk bay will be held on Sunday 25th March. Meet at Dundalk Docks at 11.00am. We will also be joined by Breffni Martin of the Louth Branch for the outing. If you wish to car share from Bailieborough email Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org in advance. The outing is timed to coincide with an incoming tide to maximise our chances of getting close views of waders and other waterbirds. This time of year is our best opportunity to see Black-tailed Godwits coming into their stunning summer plumage before they leave for their breeding grounds in Iceland.

Packed lunch and waterproof clothing recommended!
