This young juvenile Buzzard has been making a living scratching around the fields of Loop Head for near 2 weeks.
I caught it walking along a west bank checking below for anything edible to eat. I watched two Hen Harriers at different times swoop at the peaceful Buzzard as it sat on posts. Life aint easy on the headland.

After a busy summer schedule it was good to find a morning back at Loop head for a bit of birding
I was at the lighthouse at Loop Head early, the headland was very busy in Meadow Pipits and Linnets. 2 juvenile Wheatear were on the wall.
A Buzzard was on a post near the heather hill, 12 Golden Plover were at the Plover fields.
The gardens showed a sculky Blackcap that was harassed by 1 of 2 Chiffchaff around side of Gibsons
A Little Stint was at Cloghaun Lough travelling with 2 Dunlin, 2 Snipe were also at the Lough
