I was around the east of Ireland recently as its a great place for a strange birds to drop in. When I was there the weather didn't help, the winds were from the west and given the time of year it was all wrong!! In saying that I did manage Woodchat Shirke, Bonaparte's Gull, Marsh Harrier and Pectoral Sandpiper as well as long-tailed Duck and Continental Cormorant. However all birds were distant! so the shots weren`t the best. So here are the best of a bad bunch!!!
