That dull greyish bird that floats around beaches and harbours during winter
moults into summer plumage during April and May and becomes a striking elegant bird.
Every year at this time I chance seeing a full summer plumage bird before they head off up the North to breed.
There is still a few birds left in Lahinch bay, but the next wind from the south will see them off till next winter
