Our Kildare branch invite you to join them for an evening with James Bamford O`Neill to discuss the Woodcock.

“The woodcock is the only species of wading bird in Ireland that is adapted to breed in woodland. Its plumage provides superb camouflage, blending with dead leaf litter and ground vegetation where it nests, rears its chicks and roosts during the day. Breeding woodcock were once thought to be widely distributed throughout Ireland, however, recent data from the UK & Ireland Breeding Bird Atlas suggests a significant contraction in range”
