Our Kilkenny branch invite you to join them on a pleasant day trip to Tacumshin and Lady`s island Lake in Wexford. Tacumshin Lake, a favorite with bird watchers, is a large mosaic of wetlands, barely separated from the south Wexford coast by a spit of gravel and sand. This barrier is only occasionally breached by storms, but continuous seepage keeps the water mildly saline. Its mudflats are renowned among birders for sightings of extreme rarities, lost on migration from the Americas and even from Asia.
