A typical Binnion.
by paddyhillsbagger  16 Mar 2014
The Hill of Moat encapsulates all that can be found in Binnion bagging; fences, electric and barbed, dense gorse, direction losing forestry, cow churned ground, no paths. Surprisingly these obstacles are in small doses and by carefully sticking to as many forest roads and tracks as possible (even if they take you on a rather circuitous route) then it's easy enough to reach the top and be rewarded by a trig point and fine views. On my walk I also encountered Shellduck and Wigeon in turloughs near the farm, a pair of bright Redpoll in the woods, singing Skylark and Meadow Pipit on the slopes and a solitary Red Grouse at the top. Spring is definitely in the bird song! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1226/comment/15923/
