Branch Diary




Laura Woods

Laura has been interested in wildlife for as long as she can remember. Animals have always been a passion, and Laura has been birding semi seriously since 2008. Photography is one of her main interests, and photographing wildlife and especially birds is something she takes great pleasure in. Laura enjoys sharing memorable birding moments with other enthusiasts, and is always happy to go out birding with others. Some of her best birding moments have been on BirdWatch Ireland outings, as it's much more exciting when there's someone else there to experience it! Laura became webmaster for the Branch in 2011, and hopes to be a part of the Branch for many years to come. She lives in Kilmalooda, near Timoleague, with her husband Karl and their pets.
