Almost all the worlds birds come to fresh water on a regular basis. In Ireland hundreds can be observed eating, drinking and washing on river and canal banks, in reservoirs, ponds and lakes. A broad range of birds, they take advantage of Irelands climate and variety of freshwater habitats. Jim Wilson profiles these birds, including the elegant great crested grebe, moorhen, Irish snipe and whooper swan, while Mark Carmody captures the essence and beauty of Irelands freshwater birds and their habitats in magnificent photographs.
