This is my first iPhone blog post.. Due to laptop damage.
Anyhow it was nice to catch up with the stunning Ring necked Duck on Roo lough.
not the best pic as my time was limited due to a frisky Bull.

Very nice to catch up on this Tree Sparrow flock outside of Doonbeg.
They were feeding in a sloppy stoney field which must have some grain in.
Possibly the only flock of these rare resident birds we have in the county.
Very aware , and dont let you close to get photos.
The Leser Yellowlegs is a north american species of wader and a vagrant on our shores
This bird arrived at Moyasta creek back in november, at that time I spent quite a few days viewing the bird but was not able to get a photo.
News was out that this bird was still at the creek, so I chanced my arm in getting just these ID shots.
It still proves difficult to photo.
