As part of the Lough Erne Wildfowlers Council project we would like to invite you to attend the “Snipe Walk at Dusk” on Friday 6th May 2022 at 9pm on Boa Island. The drumming of Snipe was until recent times a common sound in the spring on the shores of Lough Erne. In recent times the number of Snipe and other breeding waders had been in decline in the region and indeed throughout the UK and Ireland.
The Lough Erne Wildfowlers Council have been working in partnership with LELP through funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to restore and maintain habitat on Boa Island in order to protect and conserve breeding waders on the shores of Lough Erne. Join us on Friday 6th May where Michael Stinson, LEWC will guide us through an area where habitat restoration works have taken place. You will have the opportunity to learn more about the work the LEWC are carrying out whilst enjoying the unique drumming of Snipe and birdsong of other birds that can be found at dusk.
