As the warm weather begins to roll in now that we are near the end of February we can begin looking at hiking again as nature springs to life and the birds from the south flock back north. You can already here the finches out early in the morning and soon daffodils will begin to sprout as winter draws to a close again. One of our favorite places to hike near Dublin is over at the Powerscourt waterfall which is about 35 minutes from Dublin city center.

powerscourtAs it is still pretty cold out we encourage anyone who is going hiking to wrap up with the usual hiking gear including appropriate boots, weatherproof jacket and pants and a hat. If you are planning a big hike it is probably best to inform someone at the cultural center there of the time you are expected back as it is better to be safe than sorry.

Another piece of equipment that has become popular with golfers and hunters alike is the golf range finder. This is a small piece of equipment that is about the size of a pair of small binoculars and it will tell you the range of a tree, rocks or tip of a mountain from your viewpoint. It will also tell you the angle of a slope so it is quite useful for judging the distance to a specific point or what sort of slope to expect as these things can be deceiving to the naked eye. We managed to pick up a range finder from https://www.dekoproducts.co.uk/ and it arrived in 4 days and it was also pretty affordable. Stay safe when hiking this Spring and be sure to tell people where you are going and your expected return time!

We have been playing around with the box for about a week now and it does take a little bit of getting used to.

We were pretty naive when we heard about the box and expected a sky like box and TV guide system but it was more like the Apple TV than sky. The box is pretty small, again about the same size as an Apple TV box and it comes with everything you need to get started including a HDMI cable, remote control and power lead. All we had to do then was to plug it in and connect it to our wireless internet although it does run off an Ethernet cable if you don't happen to have wireless internet.

It has a range of channels to stream from our 50 countries and has pretty much every film I could think of on it as well.

Welcome to irishanimals.ie a website dedicated to all the beautiful animals of Ireland! It is amazing to think that there are only twenty six land animal species in Ireland due to the fact that it is seperated from mainland Europe for thousands of years. A lot of these land mammals are common place in Ireland including the red fox (which has become widely known as a pest in some places!), the badger and the hedgehog. We also have a large amount of bat species in Ireland to go with the more well known animals.

To go with the small number of land animals in Ireland is a huge number of bird species which are estimated to be around four hundred. Many of these birds leave our shores in winter for warmer climates and return in our summer such as the swallow. The most popular bird species in Ireland are the robin and blackbird which cover the whole island.

Unfortuneately many species have become extinct in Ireland over the last two thousand years with animals such as the brown bear and wildcat never to be seen in Ireland again. Grey wolfs were also common place in Ireland as were golden eagles. We would like to take this opportunity to give a shout out to paws animal rescue who help animals in need all over Ireland.

We will be uploading pictures as we get them of the wildlife around Ireland and we will also do our best to take our own pictures throughout the coming summer. I recently picked up one of these selfie sticks I had been hearing about and it proves great for taking pictures of birds up in the trees. Thanks for visiting our site and if you have suggestions please let us know.
