Natterjack Toads

Hosted by Irish Wildlife Trust – Kerry Branch

Join us for our annual outing to see Ireland’s rarest amphibian and only toad species the Natterjack Toad. Found only in a few locations in this part of the country, these beautiful little nocturnal creatures are readily seen and heard at this time of year on the dunes in Castlegregory as they sing in search of a mate.

Date & Time: 9:30 pm start – 11:00 pm finish, Thursday 9th May

Location: Castlegregory Golf and Fishing Club (Meet at the car park at Castlegregory Golf and Fishing Club at 9.30 pm)

Warm clothing and suitable footwear as well as torches are essential. Suitable for kids, not suitable for dogs.
The event is free for IWT members – for non-members tickets are €5.

If the weather turns cold or very wet, we may reschedule the event at short notice – the toads will not be singing if conditions are bad, so keep an eye on the page just in case.
