LEAVE YOUNG BIRDS BE!!
Please, do not hamper a young bird's life by picking it up, and taking it home with you. It is calling its parents to help them in locating it.
After fledgling from the nest, the parent birds will keep feeding it, and look out for it, until it will be able to look after itself.
And the reason you cannot see a parent is because of your own proxomity to the young bird. And while you are ebating if or not you should take the bird home, you keep the parent from giving it well needed nutrition in the form of a meal!

Happy Christmas & a Very Good 2010
I wish all my readers a very good 2010, and that it will be one, in which wildlife and the environment will be considered seriously by our governments. (for once!)
Both of my Blogs, Birding on Wheels and Wildlife on Wheels were featured in the Autumn issue of Spokeout, the magazine of the Irish Wheelchair Association. . Some very nice reactions came in, but not much on accessible areas I am looking for. Next year I will again send emails to the Branches of Birdwatch Ireland for help in locating these.
It is not that I want to push myself to the forefront; far from it. however I do want to show that people with limited mobility can go out there to watch the Birds, take in the beautiful colours of our native Wild Flowers, or hold your breath on spotting a marine mammal. in the water.
Locally, in and around Bantry town, there are a few more places my wheels might be able to get to, but I will leave these till I have had a chance to go there in 2010.
And apart from these plans for Birding on Wheels, the Birds in the garden as well as those which captured elsewhere, will still feature on the blog as usual.
I myself have been out of sorts for some time; probably a sort of belated effect on Elly's passing at Easter this year. I'm starting to crawl out of it again and trying to get grip of my life again.
Wildlife on Wheels has been quiet this year.
