|| The Booterstown
Nature Reserve is a sanctuary for wildlife, and is an unusual
little piece of wilderness within the confines of the City
of Dublin, Ireland.
The Reserve is situated on the edge of Dublin Bay, about 6 km
south-east of Dublin city centre. Sandwiched between the main
road and the Dublin Area Rapid Transport (DART) railway line,
||covers an area
of just 4 hectares, and is the only salt marsh nature reserve
in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County. The elevated surroundings
of the marsh make it particularly suitable for the study of
wildlife, especially birds, without causing any disturbance
to the feeding flocks.
