Banded Demoiselles


I know of  a small field of Yellow Iris near to Inchiquin
Every year in this patch numbers of Banded Demoiselle Damselies flit about the stems 
Fairy like creatures.

Back to Loop


Its been a few months now since I was down at the headland.
I took a walk from the lighthouse area towards the Fodry.
A few juvenile Kittiwakes and Guillemots are still on the cliff faces.
Rafts of Guillemots were out on the water and Gulls were patrolling for a meal.







Grey Heron tackles an Eel



On the shoreline at Clahane a Grey Heron tackles an Eel that it has caught.
A difficult prey item, made more difficult when dropped in the seaweed
