The Irish Rare Breeding Birds Panel, with support from the National Parks and Wildlife Service, will host afternoon workshops on Wednesday 14th February in Dundalk, Co. Louth and on Sunday 18th February in Limerick City. Further details about both meetings, together with an agenda, are available on the IRBBP website

During these workshops we will review the status of rare breeding birds, the extent of the submissions to date, the coverage and species gaps. We will discuss some possible online options for future submissions. We hope to source possible solutions relating to future coverage and submissions. The workshops are targeted at those who already contribute records, as well as others who might be interested in taking part.

Is this survey for you?
Ireland’s rare breeding birds include a broad diversity of species with preference for a wide range of habitats. They can be quite secretive and difficult to find, and in the coming month we hope to populate our website with more information on how best to survey each species (timing, habitat etc.) and how to ascertain their breeding status. So this survey is particularly relevant to birdwatchers, hill-walkers, ecologists, other surveyors, and others who are familiar with nesting birds and who are out and about in the Irish countryside during the breeding season (April to August).

If you are interested in joining us at one of these workshops, please register your interest below.

Thank you.
