At Liscannor harbour.
 Three Iceland Gulls have come south from high arctic areas in search of shelter from the rough conditions
 They`ve joined local Gulls to roost and  forage along the harbour mouth and reefs.

Black Redstart at Clonahinchy

A female  Black Redstart has been seen in the corner of Clonahinchy ,the beach south of Seafield for a weeks .
It was very flighty and was onto me straight as i arrived, not allowing me time to get any good photos, but I enjoyed my time watching the bird feeding along the boulder wall and seaweed

Sharing steps with a Shag

My eldest son of 8 years found this Shag resting up on the harbour steps at Ballyvaughan.
The bird didnt seem to mind him as they shared the steps with each other.
Wildlife experiences start early in our family.
