This is all I know right now. A corncrake is a bird that was once common in Ireland. Modern agriculture has destroyed the wild meadows that were their habitat. I live in a valley, overlooking the ocean, protected by hills, and the last corncrake was heard about a decade ago. I’ve been told there is a breeding pair on Inish Turk. We have 23 acres and the first thing I’d like us to do is grow a habitat for corncrake.
Next… What is a Corncrake? What does it look and sound like?
