Hoopoe alert!

There has been an influx of these dramatic-looking birds in Ireland recently. Experts believe the recent warm spell is probably the reason they overshot mainland Europe and arrived on our shores. There have been a number of sightings in the south, maybe a brave bird will venture further north for the rest of us to see!
If you are lucky enough to spot one of these, Birdwatch Ireland asks that you notify them.
Let us know too :)

A date for your diary

Cavan Birdwatch will be visiting Dowra in northwest Cavan on the 26th of April.
A beautiful part of the county, Dowra is the first town on the river Shannon, and is also the start (or end, depending on where you start!) of the Cavan Way.
Bring your binoculars, waterproof gear and sturdy footwear; as well as a packed lunch.
More details about where we will be birdwatching, what birds you might expect to see and when to meet up will follow.
