5. Life on the Cliffs of Insanity

Animal Friendly

Aug 5 2022 • 18 mins

Every summer the Cliffs of Moher give rise to another generation of puffins, guillemots, razorbills, kittiwakes and other birds who flock here for breeding season. I spend a day visiting the cliffs and here are my musings on the birds, the cliffs, eggs, conservation and bird flu.  All that and The Princess Bride too!
