Publications

I-WeBS publications are regularly produced. At the beginning of each season a newsletter, I-WeBS News, is produced and sent to all counters. A summary report is also produced for the most recent season for which there is available data. The summary papers appear in BirdWatch Ireland's annual journal Irish Birds.
