River Bird Survey

By Brian Caffrey.

We are looking for breeding records of river birds (between mid-March and mid-June) from 2004 up to the present season to help us examine links between water quality and biodiversity.

 Ireland supports a rich and diverse network of river systems. They are often not so easily accessible, making it difficult tomonitor the health of this habitat for biodiversity. However, Ireland's river are highly attractive and are well visited by tourists, anglers and other recreational users. 

 Please visit our River Birds page for further details about this group of birds. This spring/ summer, we urge you to keep your eyes peeled if you are out and about on a river or its banks. We are looking for details of your sightings of all riverine species, but especially Kingfisher, Dipper, Common Sandpiper, Grey Wagtail and Sand Martin. But we would also like to know about rivers where these birds were absent.
Completing it is really easy. And please complete the questionnaire even if you
saw no riverine bir
