Redwings at the lighthouse
For a few days masses of Thrushes came down on islands and Headlands throughout Ireland and the UK.
Loop head was no different, Always a day late I took to searching the walls of the lighthouse.
Redwings,Fieldfare, Mistle thrush and Blackbirds were tired and injured birds were using the walls and thick grass for shelter.
Feathers were all over the headland...There must of been a lot of birds here a day or two ago...evidence that the Raptors came aswell , plus I did not see a Merlin today, id say they`ve fed well.
