January outing to West Cavan Lakes

Whooper Swans by Clare Donoghue

 The first branch outing of the New Year will take place on Sunday 11th January. We will meet up at 10am at Drumlane Abbey car park, Milltown. At Miltown lake, we hope to see a selection of waterbirds including some whooper swans. We will also carry out  I-WeBS (Irish Wetland Bird Survey) counts on Milltown Lake and other lakes in the area.

Event organiser Heather Bothwell.

It is recommended to wear warm waterproof clothing and appropriate footwear. Beginners and non-members are very welcome to attend all events!
