Ireland’s geographical isolation has ensured that its avian life is quite distinctive. Over 440 species have been recorded, of which almost half are considered to be scarce or rarer migrants/vagrants. It's exposed position in the west of Europe has blessed Ireland with a mouthwatering list of passing seabirds and vagrant American land birds. Many areas are underwatched, allowing the intrepid birdwatcher the chance to find their own rare birds; at the same time, there are many excellent well-established birding sites that give visitors a variety of birdwatching opportunities. This book covers them all.
