Stephen Heery published a bird report titled ‘Birds in Central Ireland – Fifth Mid-Shannon Bird Report’. In the ‘First Mid-Shannon Bird Report’ (1992-1995), Brendan Kavanagh encouraged bird-watchers in the Shannon area to visit Bord na Móna’s cutaway boglands. In this, the updated ‘Fifth Mid-Shannon Report’, Stephen Heery outlines the results of long-term bird surveys since the Kavanagh first published his findings.
This report has been cataloguing bird usage in the midlands of Ireland since 1995. Some trends are apparent such as the drastic decline of Corncrake in the Shannon Callows since the first report, and the increase in distribution of Buzzard. Stephen also comments on the development of the Lough Boora Parklands and Bord na Móna cutaways in general.
