I was on childminding duty, a morning with the sun out seemed like a good time for a round up of birds around the loughs of Corofin, so two small children accompanied me for the drive.
The Loughs were low in wildfowl, with small groups of Wigeon and Teal in corners of Lough Atedaun.
Tufted Ducks, Little Grebes and 4 Gadwall were up the top of Lough Inchiquin
Lough Cullen only had a Great crested Grebe on it ,the Whoopers were in the usual field up the road.
A Hen Harrier was approaching Toulles Lough but was strictly seen off by Crows'
A lone Drake Goldeneye was the only bird on Lough Bunny.
32 Greenland white fronted Geese were in there winter field near Tubber
