Displaying items by tag: Murmuration

BirdWatch Ireland, the national charity protecting birds, has asked people who regularly visit coastal harbours and beaches and who take to the seas “ to help in tracking one of the most breathtaking sights in Nature.”

This is the phenomenon involving starlings, known as a murmuration and which in other European countries is associated with harbours and piers, but about which more data is needed in Ireland.

Niall Hatch of BirdWatch outlined to Tom MacSweeney on his Maritime Ireland Radio Show what they would like to hear about from the public.

If it's happening on Irish waters we're aiming to cover it. This page covers Angling, Canoeing, Fishing, Diving, Kayaking, Kitesurfing, Open Sea Swimming Surfing, Rowing and Waterskiing. It's pretty comprehensive but we're keen on expansion!

If you have ideas for our pages we'd love to hear from you. Please email us at [email protected]
