The first walk of the 2016 Burren in Bloom Festival and the May Burrenbeo walk will involve an early start with Gordon D’Arcy leading a group on a dawn chorus walk.
Gordon is a Burren resident, natural historian, author & wildlife artist and will point out some of the Burren’s birds in the early morning light – they’ll hopefully put on a good show.
The early morning will be made slightly easier by starting with coffee and a croissant from the Village Stores. On return from the walk, Logues Lodge is offering breakfast for the walkers for €14.50 – like the early bird you can catch the tasty worm!
Meet at Village Store, Ballyvaughan at 5.30am (!). Bring good walking shoes and waterproofs if needed. Also bring binoculars if you have a pair. No dogs allowed. The walk is open to everyone, although a reasonable level of fitness is required. It is free for Burrenbeo Trust Members and a donation of €10 is suggested from non-members.
