Field trip to Stagrennan Polder


This field trip to Stagrennan Polder (Drogheda, Co. Louth) offers a rare opportunity to examine a coastal restoration project, while also practising botanic and ornithological field skills. This event is being kindly hosted and sponsored by the Drogheda Port Company. It will be led by ecologists from Scott Cawley.


The event will present attendees with a summary of restoration works which took place in 2006 and the challenges of how they were implemented. It will also examine, thirteen years on from restoration, how the target habitats and features have become established and evolved. Results of post-works monitoring will be presented, indicating the habitat succession that took place.

The format will include a site visit to Stagrennan polder where Scott Cawley ecologists will lead on the discussion around the restoration project as well as on inter-tidal habitat and winter bird field identification skills. The group will then head back to the port company’s offices for a presentation of the restoration project, by the port staff as well as Scott Cawley ecologists who developed, implemented and monitored the restoration works. The event will finish with a light lunch kindly provided by the Drogheda port company.
