The National Biodiversity Data Centre and Louth Nature Trust have teamed up to host a workshop which will give an introduction to the regular and not so regular breeding and over-wintering waders in Ireland.
As well as learning how to identify wetland birds participants will take home insights into the biology of various species, aspects of wetland bird ecology and conservation threats.
The talk will also focus on identification in the field, looking at wetland bird plumages and how and where to find and observe waders in Ireland.
The workshop will be of interest to novice and intermediate recorders; birdwatchers and members of other local environmental action groups.
