last gasp for autumn

Quite a few birders out scouring Galley this am, but not too much to show for it, with c. 7 chiffchaffs and a blackcap in Dirk, and not much anywhere else! There were good numbers of skylarks around, a wheatear near the lighthouse and chaffinches on the move but nothing better than that. On the seawatching front, 1 sooty shearwater and 1 manx shearwater were seen off Galley this morning, while a coot was on Kilkeran Lake this evening - it doesn't get any better than that!
