Welcome to the Fingal branch of Birdwatch Ireland. Fingal is situated in North Co. Dublin and can boast of great birding spots for the beginner and experienced birder alike. Fingal extends from the outer limits of Dublin city to Meath in the North and to the West.
Due to its location on the east coast there is a good variety of coastal habitat to be found including beaches, cliffs, islands and estuaries as well as agricultural land, woodland etc.. Rockabill Island off the coast from Skerries holds one of Europe's largest breeding colonies of Rosate Terns while during the winter months Rogerstown Estuary holds internationally important numbers of Pale-bellied Brent Geese, along with a further 10 species of wintering waterfowl in nationally important numbers, including Wigeon and Black-tailed Godwit.
