Site Details

An uninhabited island lying some 3km west of Dunquin. The island is most famed for its breeding seabirds during the summer, although October records of Rose-breasted Grosbeak and Yellow-rumped Warbler suggest that, for the most pioneering among us, there is plenty of potential for exploration.
