An after storm drive along the coast at high tide took me as far as Seafield today , Plenty of Purple Sandpipers were milling through the seaweed with other small waders ,a few of the ringed birds that winter here as usual were on show,but the wind was still gale force so i didnt stick around long,just time enough to take a few pics.

A dark cloudy morning.I took an hour at my local harbour of Liscannor to watch the Eiders that have been here for a few weeks. The bond between these two birds is very strong and they stay close to one another , during there foraging moments they dive together and the adult female always surfaced first with intention to attempt a pirate on the juvenile.. He was`nt going giving this crab up and the chase brought him close to the harbour wall for cover where he stripped the claws off and swallowed the lot.

These two Eiders have been have been in Lahinch bay most of the week ,moving up and down the quiet shoreline of Liscannor ....just out of reach.
Today they were feeding right in the mouth of the harbour at Liscannor at low tide.
Mamma should be teaching son how to find molluscs in the shallows, but rotting smelly seaweed was on the menu.
