Lapland Buntings

A cold morning at Loop Head cleared by 10 am I strolled along the road, Meadow Pipits were all over the headland with fluttery Skylarks calling and gaining yards..I sat in the heather and watched the small groups of Lapland Buntings that have been roaming the headland  they were joined by a few Wheatears.

A Stint in the rain

I was at Seafield early in the morning at high tide , Before light I sat near the seaweed watching the shorebirds in the rain.
3 Little Stints and 4 Curlew Sandpipers were mixing with the 60+ Dunlin flock
