About This Project

The sighting of the elegant Little Egret in County Clare twenty or more years ago was an unusual event. In the 1990’s they began to spread from the continent to nest in the east and south of Ireland and are now very common here. A welcome addition to our Irish list. Our native Snipe, seen here with its almost-invisible and beautifully-marked chicks, is found throughout the country, though loss of habitat may be causing some decline.
