Habitat & Species
Here, on the tidal mudflat of Saleen Creek at the eastern edge of Cork Harbour, waders and wildfowl gather to feed and roost from late autumn until early spring.
One the southern side of Saleen Creek, almost submerged by the tidal waters of Cork harbour and the creek, is the site of a Megalithic tomb. The Rostellan Dolmen is the only example of its kind in Ireland to wear a garland of seaweed.
Please see opposite a photo of a Buzzard, which may be seen here at Saleen Creek.
