Loop Head Seabirds

 Early morning and a nice day had me walking Loop Head watching the Seabirds

I was the only person on the headland with the noises and smells of the Seabird colony. I found myself in a position to get some great views of Razorbills and Guillemots, a few Puffin were on the water below the headland.

Fulmars at Hags Head

Skylarks at Hags Head

 It was a sunny morning and Skylarks were singing all over the open fields along the Hags Head walk. Some were singing their symphony in the air  while others perched on posts.

Rose coloured Starling - Rinevella bay

 A year ago to the week that I got to see the Rose coloured Starling at Hags Head.

Late news of bird had me on the road in the morning to Rinevella bay, south Clare. A message beeped to say the bird was there... and there it was hanging out with 3 adult European Starlings on a wire overlooking a garden next to the seafront.

The rain was consistant and the birds were moving about feeding but they never joined the juvenile Starling flock that were feeding near the Cows and beach shoreline, As the rain got a bit heavy I relocated them on the Sea Wall rocks, looking Grumpy and wet.
