Discover a wide range of publications from the BirdWatch Ireland archive


Our quarterly full colour members’ magazine, Wings,  is packed full of interesting articles and information. The latest issue is now available on-line to members and back issues are available in our Publications Archive.

Bird Detectives

Packed with birdwatching tips, games, competitions, puzzles and stories, Bird Detectives is the new twice-yearly 16 page magazine from BirdWatch Ireland dedicated to its youngest members. Join our intrepid investigator, Shelduck Holmes, as he uncovers the mysteries of birds’ lives. How? By using his powers of de-duck-tion, of course!

Irish Birds

Irish Birds is our annual scientific journal. Each volume consists of four annual issues and it publishes papers and short notes on all aspects of birds in Ireland, as well as annual reports of Rarities, Scarce Migrants and Rare Breeders (all formerly included in the Irish Bird Report) and the Irish Ringing Report.
