Chough flock and deck chairs

Spending the morning at the Bridges of Ross seawatching where the highlights for me were a few Black Terns a number of Bonxies and some very impressive deck chairs.

At midday I took a walk down into the Fodry at Loop Head, there was a decent flock of Choughs that were swirling along the cliffs edges , there were about 28 birds in this flock.
