South slob, Wexford

On my way to the Ferry in Rosslare  I took a small window of opportunity to to visit South Slob in Wexford. Arriving late afternoon at 4 Oclock, time was not on my side to find the Eastern Stonechat, I was not helped by a fine sighting of a Hen Harrier, numerous White fronted geese, Brent geese and Whooper swan and other distractions.
To find out by a farmer that the gate closes at 4:30 also didnt help, but the hour that i spent her has given me the insentive to return.I love unique habitats...anyhow I have a Ferry to Wales to catch..
