Ep 6 - The Shannon Callows

In Your Nature

Tuesday, 18 July 2023 - 40 minutes

This week, we interview BirdWatch Ireland breeding wader expert and born & bred callows woman Kathryn Finney, who gives us a great local insight.

We chat about, farming, floods and fences, and their impact on the birds within this internationally important wetland landscape.

Bird of the week is the little-known Whinchat, a bird pushed to the margins but well worth discovering.

This podcast is made in partnership with Heritage Offices of Laois and Offaly County Councils with the support of the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, the National Biodiversity Action Plan, and the Heritage Council.
