Wicklow Wetland Survey 2012 results published

WWS2012 Survey sites

The project involved a field survey of fifty six freshwater wetlands in County Wicklow, with the aim of identifying the specific wetlands and ecological interest of each site.  

These sites had previously been identified as being of potential interest during the County Wicklow Wetland project prepared in 2011 or were proposed for survey in 2012 by Wicklow County Council.  

The sites selected for survey were suspected to contain notable wetland habitats including transition mire, bog, fen and wet heaths as well as potential breeding sites for Marsh Fritillary butterfly.  

This report presents the results of the 2012 field survey and includes detailed site descriptions and habitat maps for the wetlands surveyed.


The reports can be downloaded from the Projects page (see link above).
