Our Golden Plovers

Between Lahinch and the fields of Hags Head is an ideal place to see Golden Plover at this time of year.
Upto 400 birds can be seen roosting on the river banks near Lahinch bridge.
Other GPs join the Lapwing on the pitch and putt and the flooded field at Sandfield
Possibly best viewed at Clahane where a 100+ roost up on the reefs during the day.
During the evening they spread out in small feeding flocks in the fields close to Hags Head.
