This site was first launched on the 13th December 1999. The Robin was trapped and ringed on the previous day and has reappeared on the site each Christmas since then. The site is bit slow now, but SURE!!
Given that this year’ s Spring seems to have fallen on Monday 27th March, a Small Tortoiseshell butterfly took to the air in a Waterford City suburb.
