Kilbarry evening walk

Waterford IWT concludes its programme of summer evening walks with a ramble along the old Tramore Railway through Kilbarry Bog on Tuesday August 5th.   The walk starts from the car park at Supervalue, Tramore Road.  The start time is 7.30 pm sharp  and the walk takes about 1 hour 45 minutes.   Kilbarry Bog is a wonderful wetland habitat and our resident ecologist Denis Cullen will be on hand to tell us about its ecology and other points of interest.

Japanese Knotweed

I am sure by now you have all seen the invasive Japanese Knotweed by the side of the road.
We can all submit records to the National Biodiversity Centre Data bank by logging  in here to submit records.
I have logged in 4 locations: 3 on the Dunmore to Waterford road (on the entrance to Dunmore village, beside the new roundabout; at Belle Lake; and opposite Harneys pub); and in a couple of places on the restored landfill in Tramore.
I have been informed that a new app for your phone will soon be available along the lines of the Butterfly app so that you can record in the field.
