May apologies

With apologies to punters and for the record, successful May outings took place

....on Sunday May 15th. Pond Dipping and a woods habitat exploration followed by a two hour walk along a section of the legendary Bothar na mBan gorm near the Harristown Passage Grave. The location was Belle Lake on the Waterford to Dunmore East road. This was a fascinating insight into local ecology and history. Walk leader for the day was Alan Walsh.
....and on May 22nd , the Cheekpoint and Faithlegg Development Group and the Irish Wildlife Trust joined forces to experience the Dawn Chorus. Denis Cullen, Birdman with the Irish Wildlife Trust lead a dawn chorus stroll though the Glazing Woods, the Marsh and the Rope Walk.

Coastal walk

The June walk of the Irish Wildlife Trust took place on Sunday 26th along the cliff path between Ballymacaw,  Rathmoylan Cove and Portally.
