Bird Photography in Ireland

Ireland is somewhat famous for its cloudy skies and this can hamper the enthusiasm of even the most determined bird photographers. But in reality, Ireland is not prone to long torrential downpours but rather short drizzles and while it can be grey at times, the sun often eventually shines and we can usually enjoy a morning, an afternoon or if you’re there on the best days: a whole day of sun. Even when it rains in Ireland, the sun may be shining. So don’t pack the gear away when you hear those first rain drops come down – these are often the times when the best images can be made; when other photographers have called it a day (and later regretted it).

If you want the best chances of photographing under clear skies in Ireland, head to the south east of the country around the middle of the year. May and June can average sunshine of around 6 hours per day – plenty of time to get some great birding in. Read More »Bird Photography in Ireland
