General information

Aghatirourke Wildlife Survey
Aghatirourke Wildlife Survey

Join our Fermanagh team to explore the rugged RSPB NI Aghatirourke nature reserve. This unique opportunity is perfect for nature enthusiasts who want to get ‘behind the scenes’ and help survey for species like dippers, cuckoos and Irish hares.

We’ll meet at the Gortalughany car park and walk for around 30 minutes to the start point for our day’s surveying. Splitting into two small groups we’ll spend the morning walking transects across and up the mountain, recording everything we see – from birds to butterflies, plants to fox scats.

You’ll learn survey techniques and discover all about the species which make their home in the county from our experienced team.

We’ll stop just below the summit for a well-deserved lunch break, before ascending to the top of the 665m peak and admiring the amazing 360 degree views of County Fermanagh.

Good physical fitness, and preferably some hill walking experience, is required to take part – as well as suitable outdoor footwear and clothing. Light refreshments will be provided but please bring a packed lunch.

This is a unique chance to go ‘off the beaten track’ to see conservation in action and all money raised will go back into giving nature a home in Northern Ireland. Numbers are strictly limited to four people, so reserve your place without delay!

*This event is physically demanding and is not suitable for under 16s. Long periods of walking over rough and often steep terrain will be necessary, so suitable footwear and outdoor clothing is essential. Light refreshments will be provided but please bring a packed lunch.

Numbers strictly limited to four people.
