"Irish Falcon
Picture: Irish Falcon's Dinner? (Contract pics)

Falcons, Eagles, Lizards, Wolves. (Boar too)
In reply to gm's query about where to spot peregrine falcons in Wicklow. Apparently there are a pair nesting in the Glendalough Valley. Wicklow Mountains National Park (WMNP) guides were offering Peregrine Falcon walks in June 2009, with use of telescopes to view the nesting spot. I’m sure a call to them would answer any questions about current nesting and viewing points etc. The WMNP can be reached on 0404 45425. I’ve never seen them myself although I have seen what I think were kestrels hovering over some unlucky creature. The most exotic species I saw in Wicklow (of the non-human kind) was the Irish Common Lizard – Lacerta Vivipara, which I spotted on the unlikely wet slopes of Tonduff. The photo I took shows the lizard complete with its characteristic five ‘fingers’.

Along with the various reintroduction of eagles projects around the country, and with talk of a wild boar being spotted in Tipperary, I wonder is it possible that the wolf will ever be reintroduced to Wicklow and Ireland? Can anyone imagine the howl of a wolf once again rolling and echoing across the Wicklow hills?

There is enough space to park one car at 100 167, just on the edge of a wood around a sharp u-bend. Proceed north for 100m before turning NE up a gentle slope, although the terrain is treacherous ...
