Little Brosna Callows Bird Hide
Top ten spot to see wintering waterfowl in Ireland
The River Little Brosna Callows is one of the top ten spots to see wintering waterfowl in Ireland. Rare birds such as the Greenland White-fronted Goose and Black-tailed Godwit attract avid bird watchers from around the country. Home to over 20,000 birds in the wintering season the site is of international importance. During these months one can expect to see Wigeon, Teal, Pintail, Shoveler, Lapwing, Whooper swans and Golden Plover. This special protection area has a two-storey bird watching hide that allows visitors to view these natural wonders without disturbing them. Also on site is a looped walking trail through adjacent woodland and traditional farming plots that encourage a rich and abundant biodiversity. Often spotted passing through the site are fallow deer, white-tailed sea eagles, hen harriers and short-eared owls. The site is wheelchair accessible. Look out for the bird hide entrance sign on the L3001, off the R438 near Banagher.
