An illustated presentation by Niall Hatch of BirdWatch Ireland.

This lecture will place a strong emphasis on the identification of common garden birds. They should be cherished as garden visitors so Niall will offer suggestions on how to attract different species to your garden and offer advice on the foods that best suit them. He will also hope to interest people to take part in BirdWatch Ireland’s annual Irish Garden Bird Survey. This is a very important exercise and helps BirdWatch Ireland keep track of the fortunes of our bird population.

Niall Hatch is Development Officer with BirdWatch Ireland. He is a keen birdwatcher since early childhood. He is a frequent contributor to radio and TV programmes and a regular panelist on RTÉ Radio One’s Mooney Goes Wild programme. He also works closely with BirdLife International partners.

Organised with the Institute of Biology of Ireland
