Discover Ireland’s Birds

In Ireland we have around 200 ‘regularly occurring’ bird species, some of which are here all year round and others that migrate to spend part of the year here. Of those migratory species, some come here for the summer to nest and other comes here to spend the winter. If we include rare ‘vagrant’ species, then over 450 bird species have been recorded in Ireland.
