Outing to Dundalk Bay: Sunday 6th October
The first outing of the season will be to Dundalk Bay on Sunday 6th October. Dundalk Bay is an internationally important site for waders and wildfowl, and is a popular location for our branch outings. Here we expect to see a good variety of species that have just returned from their Northern breeding grounds. This time of year is also a good time to look out for rarer species such as ruff, curlew sandpiper and whimbrel.
There will be an option to car share from Bailieborough or meet with the group in Dundalk. More details regarding meet-up points and times for this event will be posted closer to the date.
