On the 6th of May, 2015, the Institute of Biology of Ireland (IBIOLI) members were again warmly welcomed by Richard Morris on behalf of BurrenBeo (www.burrenbeo.com), the organisers of today’s walk. This was was part of the Burren in Bloom series of walks and talks.
On Sunday morning, May 3rd 2015 at 5.30am, 52 interested ‘birdwatchers’ gathered outside the Village Store in Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare for the annual Dawn Chorus event. The event, which was organized by BurrenBeo Trust (www.burrenbeo.com), warmly welcomed members of The Institute of Biology of Ireland (www.ibioli.net) to join them. Gordon D’Arcy, the well-known and respected ornithologist, led the group around the local Turlough, Lough Rask.
A report from the field visit to the Botanic Gardens KiIlmacurragh. A bright sun and a sweeping avenue lined with deep red Himalayan rhododendrons (Rhodendron ferrugineum) in full flower set the scene of a memorable visit for the IBIOLI members to the Botanic Gardens.
The IBIOLI, as part of its Activity Series 2015, invites its members, families, friends and general public to join this family-friendly, free, and guided walk event on a Rocky Seashore. Come and explore, learn and enjoy the treasures of walking on the Rocky Shore at Rush, Co. Dublin, guided by Dr Tasman Crowe.
