Heritage Week Seawatching Event

The annual Heritage Week seawatching event at The Bridges of Ross will be held this Sunday 19th August, meeting at The Bridges of Ross car park, Loop Head, Co. Clare at 10:00am.

This event will be hosted by both the Clare & Limerick Branches of BirdWatch Ireland. It is free of charge & all are welcome to attend. Optics (binoculars or telescopes) & warm, waterproof clothing are advised.

A great opportunity to observe seabird migration in action close to shore with species such as Manx Shearwater, Storm Petrel, Fulmar, Gannet, Great Skua & Arctic Skua all expected as well as a chance of some scarce or rare species.

The seabird event is followed up by the Irish Whale & Dolphin Group whale watch event which will be held nearby at Loop Head at 14:00pm on the same day.
