I was out on Bull Island today in search of returning Wheatear as a number of birds have already been seeing in Ireland along the coasts. Also knocking about are good numbers of Scandinavian Rock pipits with sighting going into the local birdwatch websites. Trying to I'd these birds can be a challenge at best and I reckon a lot of birders don't bother. I have to admit to checking with a couple of different seasoned birdwatchers before calling this one. Yet still a tick is a tick so I'm quite happy with this one, but if you have any comments about this bird all are welcome.
