Birding in Limerick

I took some friends around Limerick to show them the best spots to watch birds. Thankfully the birds didn`t dissapoint me. With some fantastic views of Hen Harrier, Stonechat, Raven and Skylark in the Hills; Jays,Tits, Thrushes, Finches and Treecreepers in the woods and Ducks, Gulls and Plovers in the river and ponds we had a great day with beautiful sunny weather. So here are some of the photo`s for you.
The woods are alive with tits at the moment.
