Longueville House - Annual Dawn & Dusk Chorus Walks
When Michael and Jane O’Callaghan opened Longueville House to guests in 1967, it was one of the first Irish country houses to do so - and, today, it is one of Ireland’s finest country house hotels. Its history is wonderfully romantic...
Annual Dawn & Dusk Chorus Walk at Longueville House - 17th & 18th May 2014
Learn to identify those beautiful bird songs with the aid of our ornionthologist Michael Cobley. Take a pair of binoculars with you and some sound ornionthology experience and join our guided tour with professional bird watching guide Michael Cobley on the magnificent grounds of Longueville House.
Michael (chair of the West Cork branch of Bird Watch Ireland) has years of experience guiding groups of various experience levels including newcomers and will be on hand to help with the birds, their songs and calls, and also information on their habits and habitats.
Michael has gained experience from birding in most European countries and will be available not only leading the chorus walk but also afterwards over a cup of coffee where we can wind down after our early start with a questions and answers session. Discussion is enthusiastically encouraged and opportunity given to reflect on the chorus and other birding topics.
