Explore Clare Island's avifauna, including the seabirds, land birds and waterbirds, and investigate the curious absence of breeding rooks from the island. This volume features a systematic list comprised of records of bird sightings that stretch from 1887 to 2018. The result of almost 20 years of fieldwork, it is an invaluable source for future monitoring of birds on Clare Island and beyond. The first Clare Island Survey of 1909-11 was the most ambitious natural history project ever undertaken in Ireland and the first major biological survey of a specific area carried out in the world. The 'Birds' paper included in that survey was written by Richard J. Ussher and was based on fieldwork conducted on the island between 1909 and 1911. Ussher's 'Aves' paper, however, also summarised details of the avifauna of a wider area in the west of Ireland--mainly the Counties of Galway and Mayo--a theme that was revisited several times by the late Major Robert F. Ruttledge. The current 'Birds' volume focuses exclusively on Clare Island and applies modern methods of census.

Paperback 240pp; 297x210mm; published 2002. The first Clare Island Survey of 1909-11 was the most ambitious natural history project ever undertaken in Ireland and the first major biological survey of a specific area carried out in the world. The New Survey constitutes a fresh baseline study using up-to-date methodology to provide a comprehensive description of the island from its bedrocks to its biotic communities. The survey traces the history of human occupation and the impact of human activity on Clare Island. It has revealed almost a century of environmental change and will provide an invaluable source for future environmental monitoring. This third volume in the series examines the intertidal marine ecology of Clare Island. The shores of Clare Island are as exposed as any in Europe and are important baseline sites for the assessment of future environmental change. A knowledge of the ecology of the key organisms of these exposed shores is of fundamental importance. Articles in this volume address the activities and abundance of the key intertidal organisms on extremely exposed shores and upper shore rock pools, examining the chthamalids C. stellatus and C. montagui, the ecology of limpets of the genus Patella, the mussels of Clare Island, the small periwinkle Melarhaphe neritoides, the top shell Osilinus lineatus and the effects of predation by herring gulls on the dog whelk Nucella lapillus. It also includes a catalogue of intertidal Mollusca and an annotated checklist of the marine algae of Clare Island.
