We're looking to hear your urban wildlife stories for our new series - IRELAND'S WILD CITIES
"Ireland's Wild Cities" is a new four-part TV series celebrating the wildlife with which we share our cities - the brave, clever and tenacious animals that have managed to find a niche in the ever-changing landscapes of Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Galway.
From the mesmerising aerobatics of a Starling murmuration over a Belfast bridge to the wild flowers in a Cork graveyard to the Salmon gliding unseen past Galway's midnight revellers,
"Ireland's Wild Cities" will go behind the scenes to the highest rooftops, underground and underwater to reveal an extraordinary world of wildlife activity that goes largely unseen in our cities.
We would love you to send us your stories or if you have any photos of your city’s wildlife or your suburban garden visitors.
If you live in Cork, Dublin, Belfast and Galway and have a wildlife tale to tell, please contact us.
