Rut Watch

Sunday 15th October

Drop by, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Wicklow is home to a large population of wild deer. They are particularly impressive in autumn when they ‘rut’. National Park staff shall have telescopes set up at the Glenealo footbridge on the Spinc walking trail (white arrows) in Glendalough between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Anyone walking on this route is welcome to stop by, view the deer through the telescopes and discuss the deer and their ecology with our staff.

Participants are advised to visit to the Information Office to get directions to the telescopes before setting out.  The Spinc trail is a 3 hour hillwalk. Participants will not be escorted on the hike. Hiking boots and rain gear are recommended. Bring binoculars if you have them.

All are welcome, although the hike may be too long for young children. Please NO DOGS.

Booking is not required. For more information, please phone 0404 45425.

All our events are Free of Charge, although you may have to pay for parking.
