Black Brant (type) on The Rine

 The joys of giving a family member a lift to and from Ballyvaghan is that I have had a chance to spend a good few hours a week along that stretch of North Clare coast.
 I had been meaning to try and catch up with this Black Brant (type) Brent Goose that was found a week earlier out on The Rine that had joined our more familiar Pale bellied Brents.
I walked out on the evening high tide, windy with nice light.The Geese were out on a small island but the tide moved them onto the Rine where I got a chance of a view
In the field the light plays tricks with this bird, it took me a while to be convinced I was looking at the correct bird.
