I know as birders we're supposed to like all birds, but I have to confess to liking some species more than others. Below is a list of some of my faves, all totally subjective and my own personal choice!
  • Yellowhammer - their song reminds me of hot summer days on Lancing Clump when I was a child. There used to be lots of them there always signing away. Clearly their song stuck in my head as when I heard a recording of one years many later it immediately brought back strong memories of

8/13/09 - North of Saddle Road, 19 Mile Area

Today I continued my initial exploration of the forests North of Saddle Road, across from the lower end of (the official) Kaumana Trail near the 19 mile marker. It has been horribly hot and humid this week which has made me feel extremely exhausted and sore, so I didn't get into the forest until noon. I'm slowly penetrating into this new area, having covered a good fraction of the first two kipukas in two previous outings. (kipuka 1 bad, kipuka 2 excellent) I've never explored the main forest...

A Morning In October

Posted Thursday 13th August 2009 at 13:39 by Francis Duggan
A beautiful Spring day around twenty degrees
The calmness is profound with just a slight breeze
The sun is not too warm seems perfect to me

The song of the magpie lark pleasant to hear

This bird has a high pitched whistle that he repeats through the day.

Far from North Cork and Duhallow where she lived long years ago

Towards where it flows into the sea at Youghal it ever journeys on it's...

Will I Ever Again

Posted Thursday 13th August 2009 at 13:21 by Francis Duggan
Will I ever again see Caherbarnagh or Gortavehy and his face of stone
Though I fancy from the foot of Clara I can see the old Paps of Shrone
That rise towards the skies of East Kerry not that distant from Rathmore Town
In Sliabh Luachra the home of traditional musicians and of legends of literary renown.

Will I ever again see Duhallow and the fields where the Blackwater flow
Back there now I might feel a stranger and few of me would even know
Since...
