When I heard there was a Firecrest not too far from where I dwell these days, I had to go and see it. It would not only be an Irish tick but a lifer as well. I set out Saturday morning after I recived a call from a friend informing me that it was showing at the moment. Even in the rain and wind this was a special bird to see let alone get a few shots of. So Another tick for this year and heres to plenty more.
