Birds

Bray Swan Sanctuary

Harriet Ledwidge from Bray, Co Wicklow has recently helped to establish the Bray Swan Sanctuary Volunteer Group to look after the swans in the harbour in my home town of Bray. Swans occupy an unusual niche.

Racing pigeons

Birds are in Harry’s blood – his father bred canaries, and Harry has been racing his own pigeons for twenty eight years.

A swan story

Bray, the small town in Ireland that is my home, has its own resident flock of swans - around fifty of them live in the local harbour, and they are a popular draw to visitors.
