South and East Cork Bird Trail and Birdathon

Bird trails
Extensive bird trails have been developed by SECAD Partnership and are free to use and can be enjoyed by young and old, from complete beginners to bird watching enthusiasts.  The bird trail showcases Cork’s wonderful variety of bird species, and it varies and it varies from location to location, depending on habitat.


The Cork Birdathon takes place annually in Cork. It is held in conjunction with Birdwatch Ireland Cork and West Cork branches, UCC School of Biological, Earth & Environmental Sciences Bees and the National Biodiversity Data Centre.

It aims to raise awareness of the incredible bird life and biodiversity that exists in Cork, and to encourage the public to visit locations on the South and East Cork Bird Trail.

Birdathon participants have an opportunity to spot and count birds on the Cork Birdathon species list. Team entries of two to five people are welcomed including clubs, friends, family members and back garden bird watchers! Teams are invited to record birds which are seen or heard (including birds at sea) in the vicinity of the Birdathon recording area (see map at http://corkbirdathon.ie/).

On the day, participants meet the experts at the following locations:

  • Inchydoney (The cul de sac pool)
  • Harty’s Quay
  • Pillmore Strand & Ballyvergan Bird Hide
  • Harpers Island Bird Hide
