Scope and Contents

Note about the bird 'Luaireagan' and 'smeorach' [thrush] that the former is a sea bird and that the latter builds its nests on land with material from the 'burach' which 'makes it water tight'. Text has been scored through in pencil perhaps to indicate it has been transcribed elsewhere.
