Turvey Nature Reserve is a few kilometres north of Swords in County Dublin. It is an enclosed park managed by Fingal County Council and it contains parkland, farmland, woodland, wetland and an area opening onto Rogerstown Estuary.

This is a large park and you can walk three or 4 kilometres quite easily. There is a large variety of birds in the park including Goldfinches, Chaffinches, Linnets, Yellowhammers, Reed Bunting and Stonechats.

There are many birds of prey including Buzzard, Red Kite, Kestrel, Sparrow Hawk, Peregrine and Hen Harrier and a huge variety of shore birds in the estuary, particularly in winter.

It is easy to find your way around the park. Check out the walks on the signage posted at the entrance.

There is a bird hide overlooking the estuary and it is open on Saturday and Sunday. You will usually find members of Birdwatch Ireland who are always happy to chat to you about the local wildlife.
