here be dragons...

Still no birds on patch so here's a pic of a male keeled skimmer that I took in Kerry last week. The seawatching will be starting very soon, with any luck!

bring on the fish

No birds today but a minimum of 6 bottlenose dolphins were feeding and splashing around close in at Long Strand all day - they don't normally hang around so long.

royal tern how are ya?

A ringed plover at Long Strand this evening brought up 100 for the patch year list - slightly ahead of the last 2 years too, despite the lack of sightings recently. Who cares about missing royal tern anyway, when this kind of quality turns up on the patch? (well, I do, but them's the breaks).
