Brownstown Head & Tramore Bay

Brownstown head is an interesting site for all year birdwatching but at it's best during spring and autumn when it becomes an excellent site for both seawatching and migration with many rare birds trapped and ringed here. Onshore winds from a south-westerly to south-easterly direction with misty conditions consistantly produces 'falls' of migrants. Good numbers of manx shearwater (sometimes sooty shearwater), skuas and auks and other seabirds pass the head in favourable conditions. The arable farmland on the headland has stonechat, skylark and chough, whilst in winter divers can be found in the bay.Ireland's first yellow warbler pictured was discovered here and other 'Yankies' including blackpoll warbler have also been recorded. The hedges and gardens can be very rewarding during Autumn migration between September and November. See blogs and links section below for further information from the excellent Waterford Birds website.
