Great Saltee Island ~ Wildlife Photography

Welcome to Birds Kingdom of Great Saltee Island. This private island located at south east Ireland, approximately 5 kilometers off the coast of Kilmore Quay Co.Wexford.

The Saltees are a haven for sea birds, nurturing an impressive array of birds, from Gannets and Gulls to Puffins and Manx Shearwaters. They also lie on an important migratory route and a popular stopping-off place for spring and autumn migrants. The Great Saltee also has a breeding population of Grey Seals, one of the very few in eastern Ireland. Up to 120 animals are present in autumn and up to 20 pups are produced annually.
