NATURE WALK AT BALLYLONGFORD WITH GEOFF HUNT AND
BALLYLONGFORD TIDY TOWNS.
SATURDAY 18TH MAY 2019 AT 12 O’CLOCK.
Join Geoff for a Nature Walk at Carrigafoyle Castle and walking out to The Battery on Carrig Island. At this time of year the wintering birds have left and the mudflats become very quiet. However there are summer visitors to look out for including Swallow, Swift, House martin and Sand martin.
The castle has a breeding colony of swallows where you can see them up close. The view from the top is worth the climb and give a bird’s eye view of the Shannon Estuary. Geoff will have a butterfly net to catch insects on the wing including bees, butterflies and hoverflies. We will look at the flowering plants including Thrift, Bladder Campion and Sea Lavender. The tide will be low which will give us access to the rocks where we will find 4 species of crabs. We will also look under the stones for my favorite fish, The Blenny. It is every child’s favourite as it has a face like a clown and will happily sit on your hand. So bring your camera for pictures that you will treasure. There are benches near the Battery that over look the mouth of the Shannon Estuary, which is a great spot to have a sambo and a cuppa tea.
