Grey Partridge in Boora

 The premier place in the country to see the Grey Partridge

Adjacent to the Lough Boora Discovery Park is the Grey Partridge sanctuary; an ecological oasis developed by wildlife enthusiasts to save one of Ireland’s rarest birds. This is the premier place in the country to see grey partridge. The sanctuary contains elements of traditional farming practises that allow all kinds of other wildlife to flourish too. Fields of wild flowers and crops attract a vast array of butterflies, mammals such as Irish hare and birds including lapwing, barn owls, hen harriers, kestrels, snipe, linnets and skylarks. Bird watching is accessible via trails of the Discovery Park that run the perimeter of the grey partridge conservation areas. The sanctuary is managed by the National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Irish Grey Partridge Conservation Trust.
