The Data Centre have teamed up with Louth Nature Trust to host a workshop where those who attend will receive an introduction on the regular and not so regular breeding and over-wintering waders in Ireland. Participants will take home insights into the biology of various species, aspects of wetland bird ecology and conservation threats, but the talk will focus on identification in the field, looking at wetland bird plumages and how and where to find and observe waders in Ireland. The talk will include a two hour field trip to the Boyne estuary where you can put your new found knowledge into practice.
