A quiet feeling for birdlife around Loop head and the gardens had me at the Bridges of Ross from 11- 1pm
Its such a different ocean to watch each month with different species to observe and October lends itself to our wintering species as well as the ocean going lot.
These 2 Black throated Divers were the 1st that ive seen here past the bridges.
Generally the ocean was bare but 1 Leaches Petrel, 3 species of Diver, a couple of Grey Phalarope , 10 Arctic Tern, Peregrine Falcon and a few Snipe and the one that got away was a nice return for 2 hours of fresh air. Welcome to winter
