Club Outing – Nature on the Dodder

2 December 2022 | Club Outings

On Sunday 27th November 16 Offshoot members turned out on a bright, crisp Sunday morning in late November, suitably wrapped up and hopeful to catch a glimpse of some of the majestic wildlife that inhabits the Dodder river in Rathfarnham.

Thankfully, the kingfisher didn’t disappoint and we were all treated to an hour-long display of a beautiful female doing what kingfishers do best: studying the water below and flying and diving acrobatically, framed by the golden colours of both foliage and water.

For some, it was their first ever sight of the kingfisher, for others the first opportunity to sharpen their photographic skills in trying to capture on camera this stunning spectacle.
