I was due to be in Rossalare harbour for 7pm, so I organised a few hours in Tacumshin beforhand.
I droved down from Clare to Wexord in thick rain, 2pm i drove around Lady Island lake but the rain was just to heavy for any birding.
I headed over to the east end Carpark. I watched the blue skys arrive from the sea at 4pm.
Plenty of Reed Warblers were in action near the pond. Out near the Lake a lone Dark bellied Brent Goose looked lost. A Great white Egret was fishing out in the middle of the lake.
More birds were over toward the sluice but time had ran out.
6pm i was back at the car and in Rossalare for 7
