Birdwatching on Cape Clear Island

Cape Clear Bird Observatory (Tigh na nÉan) was founded in 1959 by a group of four English birdwatchers who recognised the enormous potential Cape Clear Island offered for observing bird migration. Not only was the island in an ideal position for watching passing seabirds but it also attracted overshooting eastern and western migrating birds. Since those early days, the Observatory has amassed a considerable list of Siberian and American rarities and the island remains the place in Europe from which to see Great Cories and Sooty Shearwaters from the Southern Hemisphere and Wilson's Petrels from the mid Atlantic
