Our Wicklow branch invite you to join then for the annual walk along Kilcoole Beach to look for seasonal migrants.

The Kilcoole Reserve is an area of wet grassland behind a shingle beach. It has a number of marshy pools that flood during the winter months which are attractive to Teal, whilst deep in the marshy vegetation Water Rails hide, Reed Buntings perch out on the taller stems and Stonechats are ever present along the fence line. To the south of the reserve Light-bellied Brent Geese feed on the short grasslands during the winter months, whilst during the summer months the largest Little Tern colony in the country gathers to breed on the shingle beach.

Meet at Kilcoole train station car park at the end of Sea Road.
