"Latest Bird Trends in Cavan: The Bird Atlas Results"

"Latest Bird Trends in Cavan: The Bird Atlas Results"

A Presentation by Brian Caffrey, Birdwatch Ireland’s Atlas co-ordinator will take place on Wednesday 10 October at 8pm in Kilmore Church of Ireland Hall, Crossdoney Road, Cavan. (Hall is situated off the Cavan - Crossdoney road,signposted to the right from Cavan direction.)

The bird atlas was a joint project of Birdwatch Ireland, the British Trust of Ornithology and the Scottish Ornithologists Club. Survey work was carried out between 2007 – 2011 and results of this project will play a major part in setting the priorities for bird conservation for the next 20 years.
 Here in Cavan many branch members took part in survey work over the four year period of the project and it will be of interest to all to hear about what changes have taken place in Cavan since the last atlas was published 20 years ago.

We would like to encourage any new members or beginners to come along to this event to learn about the birds of Cavan, meet with the local group members and to hear about upcoming outdoor events that you might like to join.
