Keep an eye on our events page for future Webinars and view previous Webinars here. These event is kindly supported by The Community Foundation for Ireland as part of BirdWatch Ireland’s Birds Connect project.

Dawn Chorus Webinar

Join BirdWatch Ireland as we launch the first in a series of online event as part of our Birds Connect project. The dawn chorus is one of the most magical experiences in nature: a multitude of birds of many different species all singing together in harmony as morning breaks and light begins to fill the skies. Our natural world’s most impressive and renowned concert. BirdWatch Ireland’s Niall Hatch will discuss the reasons birds sing at this time of year and spotlight some of the key players in the orchestra. A keen birdwatcher since early childhood, he is a frequent contributor to radio and television programmes and works closely with our BirdLife International Partners.

Woodpeckers of Ireland

An illustrated talk on the recent colonisation of Ireland by the charismatic Great Spotted Woodpecker – One of the great success stories of Irish ornithology. Woodpeckers began to colonise broadleaf forests in eastern Ireland in 2005 and have now expanded their range to other parts of the country, even appearing at garden bird feeders. Dick Coombes has had a lifelong interest in birds and is always especially active in spring and autumn when migration is in full swing. For more than 10 years, he has been studying and documenting the colonisation of Ireland by Great Spotted Woodpeckers.
