Dawn Chorus 2015 - Cork Airport AV Installation

Hedgerow Cutting Restrictions - The National Parks and Wildlife Service

Restrictions on cutting hedgerows are set out in Section 40 of the Wildlife Act 1976 as amended by the Wildlife (Amendment) Act 2000 and the Heritage Act 2018. These Acts stipulate that it is an offence to destroy vegetation on uncultivated land between the 1st of March and the 31st of August each year.  The Heritage Act 2018 includes provisions to allow for managed hedge cutting and burning at certain times within the existing closed period on a pilot two year basis.

If you notice something unusual in the natural world in your garden or on your travels or have a question about wildlife, ask the Mooney Goes Wild experts! We will do our best to get you the answer but remember a picture paints a thousand words so, if it is possible and safe to do so, take a picture and send it to Mooney@rte.ie

To celebrate 20 years of Mooney Goes Wild, and Dawn Chorus 2015, an audio-visual installation will be on display at Cork Airport until the end of May. But if you can't make it to Cork airport to enjoy the birdsong and imagery in situ, you can enjoy the stunning images below! The photographs were taken by Cobh photographer Mark Carmody.
