Some birds I had in Co Kerry

I took a spin down to Co Kerry with a friend to show him the White-wing Scoter thats been seen in Rosbeigh in Co Kerry. I got some good but distance view of the bird so we were pleased with that. Also on show were 2 Eiders, 1 Surf Scoter, 1 Velvet Scoter, 400 Common Scoter, Black Guillemot, Common Guillemot, Razorbill, Gannet, 4 Chough, 1 Male Wheatear 50 Great-northern Divers and 20 Red-throated Diver. While back in Cromane we had great views of Pale-bellied Brent Geese, Ringed Plover, Rock Pipit, Little Egret and Grey Heron. While on the way home we had Raven and and a pair of Kestrels in Co Limerick. So a great days birding in all.
