The Data Centre have teamed up with Louth Nature Trust to host a workshop where those who attend will receive an introduction on the regular and not so regular breeding and over-wintering waders in Ireland. Participants will take home insights into the biology of various species, aspects of wetland bird ecology and conservation threats, but the talk will focus on identification in the field, looking at wetland bird plumages and how and where to find and observe waders in Ireland. The talk will include a two hour field trip to the Boyne estuary where you can put your new found knowledge into practice.

About the Organizer

The National Biodiversity Data Centre is a national organisation for the collection, collation, management, analysis and dissemination of data on Ireland’s biological diversity. Biodiversity data are a key requirement for understanding our natural surroundings, for tracking change in our environment and for gaining a greater insight on how we benefit from, and impact upon, the ecosystem goods and services provided by biological diversity; a national asset which contributes at least €2.6 billion to the Irish economy each year. The Data Centre was established by the Heritage Council in 2007 and is funded by the Heritage Council and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. The Centre is operated under a service level agreement by Compass Informatics Limited, an information and location technologies company focused on applications in natural resources and planning.
