Winged Encounters: The Common Birds of Dublin
By: Raymond Beggan
A collection of stunning images of the everyday birds of Dublin City from Raymond Beggan.
Cormorants, ducks, gulls, swans, herons, pigeons. Caught on the wing, at rest, in play, feeding and preening. From the Malahide Estuary to the Blessington Basin and Dublin’s parks and canals: each one rendered in exhilirating detail.
Nature on display here in its wonder and glory by a master of the lens, Raymond Beggan.
‘Dublin may sometimes appear to its citizens to be a concrete wasteland of traffic and pollution. But there is another side to the capital because Dublin – even the inner city – is home to a remarkable variety of wild birds.
A new photographic book captures this extraordinary aspect of the capital. The fruit of two-years’ work by photographer Ray Beggan, the book reveals the hidden life of the wild birds in the city. It gives a remarkable window on to the birds and the secret lives they lead all around us.’ – Sharon O’Neil, The Independent
‘“A visual, poetic essay.” – Richard Collins. RTE 1. The Mooney Show.
