A wildlife excursion along the river will get you up close with Cork’s birds
The River Lee is bursting with life.
A host of wildlife can be spotted along the banks at any time, from otters, birds, salmon and grey mullet to visiting dolphin pods and the occasional harbour seal.
On March 29th, ornithologist (bird expert) Noel Linehan will be striding the length of the Lee Fields, telescope in hand, and guiding a flock of bird-mad participants along the stretch of marsh to observe and identify species of wildlife that reside in the area.
The group will be given the opportunity to spy on their wild neighbours using Noel’s telescope. Noel will be on hand to give participants the background on each animal you spot while you observe it in its natural habitat.
