    Sparrowhawk Attack

    One of our listeners Clare Roebuck emailed into Mooney@rte.ie with an interesting picture of a Sparrowhawk. Clare spotted the Sparrowhawk in her front garden yesterday (Thursday). The initial attack on the pigeon began around 11am and the Sparrowhawk returned around 4pm to finish his snack. Clare & her son were very keen to send the picture into us, and thank you Clare & Eoin. Super picture, we love this stuff in the office.

    Mooney Goes Wild

    They might get bad press, but Ireland's native species of bat are not only protected, they add huge value to the economy. Find out why you should actually love these fabulous flying mammals.

    The ASH is the tree of choice for Ireland's hurley makers, but warning flags are up, as ASH dieback disease is found in native Irish trees.

    We explore the phenomenon of nature deficit disorder, our continued removal from nature, wildlife and the wider environment.
