Listen to this sound. It’s almost gone from our countryside.
You could once hear this haunting sound in all 32 counties of Ireland. In the late 70’s, early 80’s there were over 5000 breeding pairs of Irish Curlew, today there are less than 200.
What’s happening to this most iconic of all Irish birds, why is it dying off and is it too late to save them? Tune into @EcoEye on RTÉ One this Tuesday at 7pm to find out.
