Protection of Breeding Birds at Bushy Island, Lough Derg

10th April 2013
Protection of Breeding Birds at Bushy Island, Lough Derg

#breedingbirds – Waterways Ireland has been advised that protected birds are present and breeding on Bushy Island, Lough Derg.

To protect and minimise disturbance to nesting birds in the area, Masters of vessels are requested to observe a voluntary exclusion zone by not encroaching within 250m of the island and to proceed directly in and out of the harbour without stopping near the island, particularly between the months of April and August inclusive.

Masters should note that deliberate disturbance to nesting birds is illegal under the Wildlife Act (1976).
