Declan Murphy, author of highly praised new book A Life in the Trees – a personal account of the Great Spotted Woodpecker in County Wicklow will be leading a IWT Dublin branch walk to hear the bird drumming, and perhaps even see one. We will not however, be looking for nests or chicks.
Birds, like otters, are early-morning creatures. We will be meeting on the bridge in Rathdrum, County Wicklow, at 8 am on the morning on the 24th. Children are welcome, but all should be conscious of the Irish weather, dress appropriately, bring raingear and bring nibbles for children (and yourselves!).
