4: The Burren and some birds

Near the cliffs of Moher is this area called “the Burren”. For a long time it was thought to be a wasteland where nothing could grow. But they have now discovered that it actually has some of the most varied plant life in the world. There are flowers and insects from all over the world that flourish in this barren looking land. There are some interesting old rock burials around there that you can stop and see too.

In the Burren they had a Falconry that you could visit. Nick and Jonah went in while Declan and I took a walk. Jonah got to hold one of the birds, I can’t believe how brave he was! That things talons are longer than his fingers!
