Guillemot




While out walking the kids along Claddagh beach,Galway i came across this tired out Guillemot in the shallows.
It reminded me of when I was around 10 years old (1980) living in west Wales. I would cycle the 3 miles to help at the Oiled bird rescue centre in West Williamston ,Pembrokeshire.Oiled birds in them days were a common place and I can remember the baths at Lower house farm full of Giullys, Razorbills and Shags.
