Spring is the season when birdwatchers are on the lookout for unusual and unexpected species. Our panel discuss how Mid-March this year saw an unprecedented "mini-influx" of a bird called the Alpine Swift.
There are seven species of swan that occur across the globe, three are native to Ireland- Mute Swan, Whooper Swan and the Bewick’s Swan. Richard and Niall discuss these fascinating birds and give us a few pointers on how to identify them.
